Wednesday, October 3, 2007 - Roller Coaster Ride
03 October 2007 | En route from Neiafu, Tonga to Levuka, Fiji
The wind has been between 25 and 30 knots all day and the rain has returned. The sailing has been "boisterous" as we say. At least we are making good time. The noon-to-noon distance was 147 miles for an average speed of 6.1 knots. I would give up some speed for nicer weather. The solar panels are putting out almost nothing so I run the engine a bit each day to charge the batteries.
All else is well onboard except for being hungry, wet, tired and cold. Are we having fun yet?
