Tuesday, November 6, 2007 - Day 4 of Passage: No Wind
06 November 2007 | En Route from Fiji to New Zealand
At 9:00 AM this morning the wind died after blowing hard all night. We have been motoring at 4.7 knots ever since. Nevertheless, our noon-to-noon distance for today was 138 miles for an average speed of 5.8 kts, the same as yesterday. The forecast calls for more wind tomorrow so I am hopeful we will be able to hoist the sails and turn off the engine. This afternoon we crossed the halfway mark and celebrated with a cold beer. With the engine running there is plenty of juice to run the refrigeration and watermaker.
All else is well onboard.
