500 mile day ahead

500 mile day ahead

As Giacomo was steaming towards Fiji, Tom Addis, navigator on board the VOR 70 sent in this update;

All good here. In 20kts of breeze now and just changed to the J4 which is the smallest jib that we should need. Very wet on deck and it will be like this until the finish now. Pos 33 19S 176 20E, 900 miles to go and hoping to do close to 500 miles today which will put us past the half way point by the end of the day. So… very wet, very bumpy but very fast.
