onto Niue day 5: butting heads with the spcz

Beveridge Reef wasn't meant to be. The weather got increasingly worse
overnight, with downpour after downpour and 30 knot winds. By the time we
decided to shift course for Niue, we were only 10 nm away from Beveridge
Reef. Hello SPCZ. You win.

With no land to break the swell, we figure that Beveridge Reef would not
have been comfortable at all. It's too bad. It sounded like it would have
been such a unique experience.

I can't deny I was disappointed, but both Rick and I agreed it was for
the best. Mother Nature is the boss. A few hours later, the wind has abated
some, and it's raining less. (Hurray for that, it's hard to manage
leaks on Nyon when it rains that much.)

Oh, and the solenoid stopped working again.) Peanuts and fake cheese. Yum.
(The good news is I found 4 granola bars!)

We should make landfall in Niue by tomorrow.

Position: 19* 43.112'S 168* 11.121'W
Distance in 24hrs: 122 nm
Speed: 5.4 knots
Heading: 255*T
