Passage to New Caldonia - Day 2

Yesterday was a day of strong easterly winds and rough bouncy seas. We learned from the SSB radio nets that there are a couple of other boats who left Fiji on the same day to make the same passage to New Caledonia. They departed from different places and are larger and faster than us, so it is unlikely we will see anything of them before we arrive.

Our position at 0600 Monday Oct 14 is 19 04 S 173 20 E. We are averaging around 6 knots in 20-25 knot winds with just a partly furled jib up.
