Goosewinged westwards

We set our sails with Genoa poles out and goosewinged with the staysail and main. Hiva Oa is 1400 miles directly downwind and at this pace arrival on 12th April is possible.

Yesterday I felt exhausted and cold, and after lunch retired to bed shivering and covered myself with the duvet to warm up. Heatstroke maybe? I was relieved of my 21-24:00 watch and allowed to sleep all night, waking this morning with a renewed joie de vivre.
