Day 3 - Passage from Mopelia to Suwarrow

Well, if day 1 was too much wind, and day 2 was not enough, today is the day
for perfect winds!! And so far, it has been fabulous. We've got about 13
knots of wind on our beam, and we're sailing at 6.5 knots under genoa alone.
The boat is steering herself, and we're hanging in the cockpit, trying to
eek out a bit of shade.

The going is good... We both have our sea legs back, so we're fishing again.
Hoping that Greg's rod and Murray's reel will have some more success!!

Our position at 11am local time on May 12:
15 15.4S
157 20.7W
