five steps forward, three steps back...

[pos]12 18s 142 12w

[s]Underway from Fakarava to Fatu Hiva, Marquesas.
50% clouds, 1.5-2m waves. Better progress today. 235nm to go. Noticeable current set against us.
Marquesas maintains a 30 minute time difference ahead of Tahiti and Hawaii. Given that I have no appointments, I'll likely not change my watch.
The sailor in distress that we were listening to has been picked up by the Fiji Coast Guard. His sailboat was set adrift. Bummer.
