Day 4

13°08'S. 144°46'W 389nm to go


Well here I sit once more, I managed to sleep about 4 hours which was great but just not enough.
Am just so so dog tired.
I have been jumping up and down changing directions, as what little wind we have, is changing directions all the time.

 7am, well after another three hours sleep, I'm up making bread, and banana cake type bread.

Yeah I know it was early and even before my first coffee, but if today is anything like yesterday, with me being so tired, I figured if I got it done early at least I could relax the rest of the day.

So what has happened all day, not much.
It's been cloudy, rainy, stormy, and very little wind.

We are getting close to a group of islands, and should come near them sometime tomorrow morning, these islands are called, the Tuamotus Islands, they stretch hundreds of miles, they are only a few feet high the highest thing on them is palm trees.
As you can see we so need to be extra careful going through these, we have worked out a gap, of twenty miles, to go through and then we turn and go through another gap.
A lot of ships through the years have been wrecked in here so we are being so so careful.

Well tomorrow is another day.
