June 22, 2014 Nearing Suwarrow

We’re on our final approach to Suwarrow, running before the wind with poled out jib and single reef.  Good combo as we can run deep without shadowing the jib, and shorten the sail quickly by roller reefing.  Another “autopilot” day.  Playing Scrabble belowdecks each afternoon during siesta.  We set a timer to go off every few minutes and whoever’s turn it isn’t goes up to check the horizon and sail trim.

All set to arrive in daylight tomorrow at (theoretically) LW slack for the pass into the atoll lagoon.
