Pacific Crossing (4th Leg) Fiji to NZ - Day 3
24 October 2010 | Pacific Ocean
Noon to Noon run 166nm - wow, new record! Last night was really rough with 40kt winds. The forecast is favourable, so the are turning slightly and heading straight for Bay of Islands. At this rate, Nick and Gary will arrive well ahead of schedule (although probably exhausted from the rough sail). They've got plenty of fuel in reserve, so as the winds ease near New Zealand they'll probably have a slow motor. Both households miss the guys and want them home safely soon.
