Tonga to NZ Day 6
After a beautiful calm day yesterday, motoring most of the day, today we got wind on the nose with short steep seas. We are beating into it and going pretty slow but at least we are sailing and it's a nice sunny day. It is getting cooler. I put a fleece on last night for the first time in 6 months. Yom caught some nice chunks of pumice today with the help of the galley strainer. Our progress is good: almost half way to NZ with about 583 miles to go. Is is really 24 shopping days until Christmas?
