Opua. 1100 nm and 8 days. Great passage, great sailing! What an end to our 3rd Pacific crossing. This one started 1st of March from Puerto Montt, Chile. Our own updates didn't come through because of an email error, but good service, thanks!

Lightning and thunder during the whole night. Main in 3rd reef, corner of headsail out. Seas start to build, some wash over the boat, but Manta is taking waves beautifully. We stay down below, watch is kept by standing in companionway in the shelter of our solid "sprayhood". Great to have yesterday's chicken curry left :-). (28.10. the wind was ENE, not ESE as written.) All well.
