July 28, 2007 – Underway to Futuna
Tackless II is underway again. We took off at three this morning, last night's wind long gone, but the seas still pretty rolly. We have sails up, but mostly to steady us, although as I type I feel a steady heel to starboard. Whether we are getting a land breeze or the wind has really shifted to the North I cannot tell. We are feeding into the funnel of the Somosomo straights, a pass choked down to about a mile by the reefs reaching out from Viani Bay and Taveuni. We are happy to be doing this in the daylight in calm conditions. However, we wouldn't mind some wind from a sailing direction for the rest of the trip!
