Is It Fun Yet?

03 September 2011 | Day 4 to Fiji
Ditch Bag

3 September 2011

Bought waterproof ditch bag during a recent visit to US for when boat bursts into flames or crashes into the odd semi-submerged container to sink like a stone. Loaded it with all the emergency gear no self-respecting life raft would be without: food, water, flares, signal mirror, sun screen and cribbage board... no sense letting imminent death spoil the fun.

Hand steering for the next 4 or 5 days at first seemed like the cat's pajamas, but upon reconsideration rigged Voyager wind vane when electric autopilot, having gotten a tad hinky of late, assumed 'former' status. After a few petulant attempts at returning to New Zealand, Waldo (OK then, you think of a better name) has now kept us headed toward Fiji for several hours biding it's time until middle of night to go squirrelly (immutable law of nature #57).

Latest forecast indicates previous 4 straight days of wonderful sailing may stretch into tomorrow afternoon before effluent impacts the air movement device with winds Monday and Tuesday into 30s and seas to 4 meters. Woohoo!
