All are well. We're definitely a team now, everyone shouldering a part of the burden of daily chores. The re-worked spinnaker pole did not work out as hoped. so we're now working to free a frozen piece on the pole and hope that at some point we can use it. Our much anticipated whisker pole is stored for the duration. Grrrrr.

We broke 2000 nm to Nuku Hiva this morning. Solar is producing and water generator cranking away. We've suffered a few more equipment breakdowns that I'll try to repair. Jeez, you'd think that we had done no preparation. Winds are steady and a bit stronger than yesterday. Winds are predicted to turn to the east a bit and that will allow us to deploy the jib and increase speed a bit.

Each morning we awaken to a 1/2 dozen dead flying fish and few cuttlefish on deck. They fly on at night and expire. An odd habit, that. We had no wind yesterday and clouds prevented solar panels from helping so we had to run the engine for a few hours to charge batteries and make some speed. We'll do well enough today not to repeat.
