Little to no wind today and the entire bay is 'glass'
Pressure is 1016
Overcast after a number of sunny days
Impi is happy, happy and happy :)
The first thing that struck us is the clarity of the water even at sunrise ... it reminds us of the Tuamotu Archipelago clarity.
So - all is well with Impi and we look forward to exploring these amazing islands ... cheers everyone ... Impi out !
Ok friends - until later then Cheers for now Brent and Ana
Later at GHRadio net time Ana reported in with a very strong clear signal, all was good and their eta is Late on July 18th.
Typical of the terrific folks they are - this was their reply: M is joining you in solidarity by replicating your conditions here, throwing off his slippers, having one less log on the fire and rocking vigorously in his chair, the soaking seawater has had to be replaced by a tastier cool libation, but he feels your pain! This sense of humour made our day !!!
We are double reefed on the main and third reef in the genoa - SLOW is what we want right now to be comfortable. So - champagne is still deeply stowed and we wonder if there will be an opportunity to crack it before reaching our destination ... which by the way ... could be anywhere in the world the way the weather is going :)
Found this rather frustrating as we try to reel in that elusive 30*S before the front arrives ... could they not pick a different fishing spot than one right on our route - LOL! So - we hope our pursuit of 'comfort' over 'speed and distance' serves us well, especially with the sea state predicted after the front - we think a gradual curve NW will make the journey a little longer but hopefully a little more comfortable (ha ha).
Not looking forward to the seas following the front but otherwise - All good on-board Impi
