Sailing Around The World

Underway to Aneityun Island, Vanuatu

Left this morning with a better weather forecast for the Vanuatu Islands. It should be a fast sail as we have a beam reach sailing at 6 to 8 knots with 20 knots of wind. The sea is a bit lumpy and a few swells are over 2 meters but mostly staying between 1 to 2 meters. I must say it is so nice to be traveling with the wind then into it. Anyway it should take us two days to sailing the 305 nautical miles to Vanuatu. I sure hope the live volcano it worth the back tracking. I Cary has been carrying around marshmellows, gram crackers, and chocolate for over a month now and we have not eaten any of it yet. We are looking forward to roasting the marshmallows on some magma hehehe. May try and sleep on the volcano too but first we have to get there.

Cheers,

Jacques Henry
