We’re a day-and-a-half into what we hope is a three day passage from Tonga to Fiji. We owe you all one (or more) posts on Tonga, but once again the data pipes have not been cooperative, so those will have to follow. Suffice it to say that we are somewhat disappointed in Google’s Project Fi and in Mr. Zuckerberg’s (sp?) attempts to bring decent internet to the outer reaches of the world.
For now, this is just a quick note (because we’ve been absent) to let you all know that we have 20 knots from dead astern, the jib all the way out, and are making a nice, stately pace toward Suva. Plenty of wind to go faster, but we don’t want to arrive before Monday morning (so as not to have to pay the government officials overtime) so we’re taking it easy and pretty much loafing along.
We hope to have some pictures and stories up as soon as we get to Suva.
