Day Two

As of 0600 this morning we have come about 213 miles,but there are still more than 2000 to go. We are still just getting started. We still have a reef in the main, and we sailed very conservatively during the night, with the jib partly furled. It's not as stormy as the last time out. Our 0600 position was 24N24, 155W47 and we are doing 5.4 knots at 020M. The wind is 9 knots at 045 relative. It was mostly clear last night, no moon, with a beautiful Milky Way. During my whole watch this morning (0000-0300) there was a glow lighting up the horizon to the north. It is some sort of fishing operation that we have seen out here before. Bill
