Underray Again

We left Bora Bora this morning just before dawn and we're sad to say good-bye to French Polynesia. This time our destination is the Suwarrow Atoll, named after the Russian ship that discovered it (the 'w's' are pronounced like 'v's'). It's almost 700 miles due west of Bora Bora and is our first multi-night passage since we left the Tuamotus. The wind is filling in at about 18 knots, the genoa is poled off to windward (starboard) and we have a single reef tucked in the main. The swells are building a little and sometimes we're rolling pretty hard. Frankly, I'm not feeling great despite my usual dose of Stugeron, our preferred anti-nausea medication, so I'm going to keep this post a little on the short side.

The skies are blue, the weather is warm, the watermaker is filling our tanks and all is well.
