Temps are 81 to 82 night and day. Humidity about 74 to 78% most of the time on the ocean here. Seas good sized 2 – 3 meters but rolly and long now. Wind 15-23 but sometimes at night dies down a bit to 7 to 12 or less. We put up a pole and full jib that works great, we can adjust the jib size. Hard to gibe over but now we can go down way deeper and stay on our course we want with just this tack. Before we had to gibe back and forth, up to 50 miles off course to one side over night. Heidi our Hydrovane is going great. Fakarava in Tuamotus 292 miles to go. Doing about 5 to 5.5 miles per hour.

We had a problem with our solar panels being switched off on two of them and didn’t know it. Not enough power was coming in and could not figure out why we didn’t have plenty. A bucket in the laz I think caused the problem for two days after making water brought our batteries way down. Now doing better at minus 62 amps but I think another day and we’ll be better. Two days in row we were minus 150 amps in the morning. Cloudy to partly cloudy days here at times, not quite like Mexico. 5:30pm local time, 0300 UTC due to quirk in time zone here.
