Barreling along in the SE trades today–made a solid 148 miles in the past 24 hours.  Sighted Motu One this afternoon–a string of palms in the middle of the ocean.  Feeling good about our decision to take a Northerly route through the Cooks as there are several lows above NZ that are spinning associated fronts out south of us.  We’re sitting pretty,  jib on the pole, wing-on-wing in 17-18 knots with Monitor supplying expert helmsmanship ’round the clock.  Spent the day cooking, resting and reading.
