Winds of change

Day 9 Maupiti to Niue, Wednesday, July 28, 2010
Position at Noon Niue time (UTC -11hrs), 18 53.377s, 167 46.143w
At long last the winds are starting to pick up. The sea state is getting messier (technical term for not so much fun). We are 120nm out of Niue and will make landfall tomorrow. This passage will go down as one of our longest not in terms of miles but days at sea.
The temptation to make a short stop at Beveridge Reef is not great enough. We are looking forward to ending these days en route and making landfall in Niue.
