83 miles to go, 182 miles toward destination this 24 hour period. Raised the kite first thing in the morning and made good time all day. Still could not head directly at Fatu-Hiva as we had to steer downwind but the auto pilot was able to keep her on course, so a better day. Even put some fishing lines out and caught a 15lb Mahi- Mahi in the afternoon, At sunset dropped the kite and motor sailed with the jib only to the south of Fatu-Hiva so we will be in a position come sunrise to raise the kite and sail directly downwind to Fatu-Hiva. Getting very close now.
