Beveridge Reef: Day 1

It's official: we have escaped Suwarrow's clutches... It was time to leave
after 12 glorious days.*

We've been at sea since 10:20 yesterday morning. After a few hiccups,
(namely, a sticky throttle), we weighed anchor and were out of the pass.
There
is not a whole lot of wind out here, technically we'd have done better to
leave two days earlier, but we first had to squeeze that last bit of fun
out of Suwarrow. That place felt like summer camp.

So, we'll see how this passage goes, we have a total of 500 nm to travel.
We hope to stop in Beveridge Reef for a night or two before continuing on
to Niue. The weather will decide for us.

For now, we're bobbing around on the big blue, wondering what's next.


*I will be posting about Suwarrow once we have Internet in Niue.

Position: 15* 04.184'S 163* 54.391'W
Distance in 24hrs: 124 nm (133 nm since departure)
Heading: 206*T
Speed: 3.6 knots
