Hiva Oa – 660 nm to go April 24, 2014

Posted by steveandjudy in Code Blue 2014.

Not there yet, we’re getting trashed by 20-32 kts the last couple of days. Finally down to 25 this morning. We just put in a blog update about the equator party you should see.

Now 660 miles to go. So maybe 6 or so days if the winds keep up and the boat doesn’t fall apart.

Judy got trapped in the head due to the latch on the door knob handle broke in the down position. I finally rescued her but she was kind of loud about it.

Still no fish. We do about 100 to 130 but we don’t like getting trashed, so slow down in high winds to 100 or so. Looks like it will be sunny to day already. Jib only up at 80%.

Grib charts say 5 to 15 kts for days now. Wish we could give some wind to others north of us, as they don’t have much.

Judy has our sympathy but we are sending it while laughing pretty hard.
