rockin and rollin

Our Noon to Noon run was 195 miles- which we are pleased about- the wind has been in the 20-25 range- we are sailing on a course of 180 and managing 8.5 -9 knts- - a 6 to 8 foot wind swell is hitting our port side quarter so we a moving around quite a bit- this does seem to be abating so the wind may start to back off as well. We are currently sailing with a reef in the main and the head sail rolled down to the second hash mark. Everyone is fine, albeit a little tried. We are starting to think about our arrival in Hiva Oa in a week to 10 days. This will most likely be the last time any of us undertakes a voyage of this duration- but of course who knows- Gavin, Paloma and Teyber have a lot of years and adventures ahead of them. Thanks to all of you for your comments- it is nice to stay in touch and have a conversation.
