Suwarrow bound

We sailed out of Bora Bora's pass at midday, most of the fleet with colourful gennakers flying. We think we were first over the start line!
We are having a beautiful afternoon's sailing with wind that has picked up from 3 knots to 12: totally unexpected, as the forecast predicted very little wind.
Having a crew of 5 is such a luxury. We are on watch for 2 1/2 hours then 10 hours off...
Richard has 2 fishing lines off the stern and we are hoping for a fish supper tonight.
We are about to pass the island of Maupiti to port then later on, a tiny island called Motu One!
