We’re halfway from Vava’u to Savusavu now… winds have shifted to the ESE and are holding well at 15 knots.  Uneventful day today–boat is rolling a bit with the wind being directly behind us, but we can’t complain about having the hatches open!  Monitor vane faithfully steering on her battered control lines, and I’m amazed we still have full fuel tanks since leaving the coast of North America.  It’s the only way to go!  We are excited for Fiji & we should start seeing her outlying islands on the horizon sometime tomorrow afternoon…
