Out Into the Deep
We've been sailing for 4 days -- straight East out into the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean. Our plan is to sail across the Pacific, south of the island nations and then head north to catch the Trade Winds, which are consistently strong, and consistently blowing westward. These would take us back N.W to Tonga. If the weather keeps up being ornery, we may have to be open to end up in any number of places: Fiji, French Polynesia, New Caledonia, or even the Cook islands. I'm rooting for the Cooks.
