Next Step - 22nd March 2020
Overnight the wind remained light but we did have some light squalls with heavy rain showers and a little bit of lightning. In the morning we had a look at the weather and decided that we needed to stay north to avoid a wind hole, so for the first time in 2,700 miles we gybed onto starboard tack :) Not knowing what will happen when we get into Papeete, Tahiti, we spent the morning considering the things we need to do to secure the boat for a long stay in the marina or ashore. As always, the fishing lines went out, but we were unsuccessful at catching anything, it is a good thing that we had provisioned with sufficient contingency. The wind has almost gone away to nothing so the sails came down and we resorted to starting the engine to get us through a dead patch of wind. Tomorrow is probably going to be a similar day of motoring.
