Day 2 – Tonga to New Zealand

Things finally calmed down a little bit this morning. We awoke to sunny skies, calmer seas, and breeze under 20 knots. We un-furled our sails to keep the boat speed up and made 8 knots most of the day. We had a “Mince Pie” for dinner which I think is the local version of meat loaf. It wasn’t too bad.

Our updated forecast calls for similar conditions for the next day or two then picking back up again with reinforced trade winds. 552 miles to go!
