An awesome day sailing in the South Pacific … This is what the 2 days of pain has rewarded us with…

Well its now full on and the race is tight for sure, we are regularly downloading the tracker file to keep an eye on the competition and check how re rating, its a game of cat and mouse for sure, some gain some losses but still close for sure.

We now have 20kts with the A2 up and screaming along, pondering the optimum time to gybe for Noumea, its 318nm to go to entrance of the reef so a full on night and all next day to come …

On the domestic front the day started in lovely warm sunshine, breakfast was Shona’s georgous home made museli with fresh yoghurt and fruit followed by fresh made coffee, perfect …

Then it was housekeeping tasks with full sort of the boat and a clean through out everything, boat was like a chinese laundry on deck ,,,
Managed too get hatches open to air cabin out, you can imagine what state thats in with 9 sweaty blokes and wet kit down below, the “hum” was not that very social I can assure you …

Personal hygene tasks next (phew !!!) and we are now all in warm clime mode shorts and t shirts etc.

Anyway I’d better get back toiling over the NAV software trying to find best gybe point.

Will check in again tomorrow hopefully with better idea of likely finish time

Cheers from the hard worrking Equilibrium crew
