Sailed last 24 hours! Winds have died down to a manageable level and we are having a great ride today. There is a full moon and we are passing an island, an old volcano, about 6 miles away. We slowed down today as we were not going to make landfall before sunset. So we are going to be anchoring at sunrise under the spewing volcano at Tanna Island.

Ron's Notes:
The island they passed is "Futuna Island".
