We are both feeling a lot better today. The wind is still on our nose. We went through a big squall about 4 hours ago in the middle of the night. We have a double reef in the main and we are making about 5 knots. Bob is doing a terrific job of steering. We are deliberately heading a bit east of the rhumb line, but also that is what the wind is allowing us to make. If you get your easting in them once you get closer you pick up the SE trade winds and it will push you towards Fiji and you will have a down wind run, rather than trying to go against the wind once you get close.
