after a very rainy wet night we are back with
semi-sunshine and wind on the bum. hopefully we are soon on less then a
1000nm countdown. all well, morale still good.

Life is good aboard. Wind is steadyish, not always from
an ideal angle but we make do. We saw a huge pod of dolphins (60+) the
other nights being on a feeding frenzy, after dinner they came over and
played for about an hour in our bow wave, lots of baby ones, so cute.
Btw dolphins are the sailor's cats (google dolphin videos I did some
sewing today, mid-Pacific might be my most unusual location for such so
far. Time for tea.

BERGFEST today, that's what 'ze germans' call the halfway
mark. I guess it's all downhill from here. All well aboard, we have nice
sailing conditions. baking bread and catching fish.

Today's contemplation: RapaNui/Easter island distance
1200nm, HivaOa/Marquesas 2400nm ... tempting to change plans.. but then
tacking 1200nm quite likely will end up in double the distance... yeah
na we stay on course 250 and the trade winds will do the rest. too easy.
all is well aboard.

Sailing again! After two days of motoring we found wind
yesterday afternoon and have been making good headway since then. But
the activity levels are reduced to eat-sleep-sail-repeat due to the sea
state which Matt describes aptly as 'puke soup'. Course is now more
direct to Hiva Oa, only(!) 446hrs to go...

Hooray, we crossed the equator, yes we are back in the
home hemisphere! I had my bucket wash on the transom; one bucket
northern hemisphere, the next from the southern one, equator baptism
sort of done I reckon One sad note: we left our pink friend squiddy
the fishing lure up north, some biiig fish snatched him and all the
fishing line. Today we sailed along the Galapagos islands, but we're
too far off to see them. Matt had an eventful day: down into the big
deep blue he went first thing in the morning to check the anode, next he
was up to the top the mast to fix the broken spinnaker haylard. Never a
dull day and out here I tell ya. Whoever told that lie about deck
lounging all day and cocktails for sundowners should be keelhauled!
cheers from two sunburnt sailors.

2100UTC this is today's update, had a minor(!)
connection problem yesterday - the provider just deleted our account?!!
hope it is sorted now. sailing along nicely with 6-7ktn(SOG) in 12-15kt
wind, slowly getting back into the rhythm of a long passage. very quiet
out here, no birds, no fish, no other boats in sight. time to catch up
on some reading
all happy here.

Flying along, making the most of the good wind
while it lasts. We had really good, favourable wind for the last 24hrs.
Passed Punta Mala early morning, the last sight of land for a while I
guess. Put the second Genoa up and went along all day wing-on-wing
double Genoas with up 9ktns (SOG); awesome way to sail, very stable.
Matt had some good sightings on his watches: dolphins, a big turtle
clinging to a huge piece of wood, somersaulting sting rays and a
hammerhead shark slowly passing our bow...not sure I believe the
somersault thing but I did see the shark's fin!
parsley pesto and cilantro pesto made, passage food gonna be yummy
cheers d+m@m

Adios Panama! Thanks for the good, bad and exciting
times (especially that hurricane Otto), new friends we made and old ones we
met again, and for being different to what I expected.
A cold ceverza in hand we are off into endless days/sunsets/nights
westward. with Matt Dread
