Sailing Around The World

Underway to Tonga, Wet and Wild

I had a great time in America Soma but I have to get underway again. Right now we are about 30 miles offshore and the wind is blowing 25knots out of the east. The waves are out of the east south east direction about 3 to 4 meters in height. So far based on my bearing and the wave direction I am on tack taking waves over the side. I adjusted my bearing but the ocean is all mixed up right now and so far I took two very good ocean showers by waves in the cockpit. The deck is continuously covered in green water but we are making 6 knots. SHould be a very interesting night watch.

Current position: 14deg 50.3min south, 170deg 58.1min W, COG 197 degrees,

Cheers,

Jacques
