March 12, 2014 80 Miles to the Tropics

We are officially over 1/4 of the way to the Marquesas! Making consistent 130 nm days and North winds holding steady and gradually transitioning to NE. Amazing sailing continues. Trade winds to establish themselves in the next 200 miles or so, and ITCZ forecast looks very promising–narrow band at 130 degrees west on the Equator, our next waypoint!!
