We can see it!

We can see it. We see New Zealand. We are only 30 miles away and
expect to be at the dock in 6 hours or so – hopefully before
dark. We had beautiful calm seas most of last night which let us
make a lot of progress (motoring) until about midnight, and then
we had a few hours where we could actually sail. Rough seas
picked up for a few hours this morning hampering our progress,
but it is much smoother now and we are
making good time. Great news!!!
