Day 5 to Vanuatu

Whilst we are still making progress, the last two days have been frustrating. We managed 7 hours of sailing yesterday, but for the rest of the time we have been starting and stopping the engine as the wind comes and goes. We had two fishing lines out today, but a catch has eluded us.

The highlight today was seeing a large pod of humpback whales, fairly close doing spyhops and showing their flukes, but not near enough to photograph. It is early in the season for them, but maybe they are staying in the deep water to feed, before heading for the islands to give birth and mate.

Currently it looks as if it could be another 3 days before we arrive at Anatom, unless the wind fills in, in our favour.
