[111004, 0216 UTC,  Underway Vanuatu to Marshall Islands,

0651' S / 171 54' E]

Dear Friends;

We are currently on passage between Sola, Vanua Lava, Vanuatu and Majuro in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, which is at 7 N and east of Vanuatu. We knew this was going to be a challenging, and possibly slow, passage and it is proving to be both. Despite this, we're all well, the boat is doing great (though salt encrusted) and we're maintaining our course (or better) as we bash into large confused seas and fight to maintain easting with a west-setting current.

We have made a few submissions to our Ocean Logs page on our website and will continue to do so, barring any equipment failures.

Your friends of the yacht Carina,

Philip, Leslie and fat cat, Jake
