North

We started moving north yesterday morning, we're now at 45 south, our
target being Raivavae at 23 south. We still have a bit of easting to
make, overall about 1500nm to go.

A few difficulties along the way -- stern tube is still leaking although
it's only a drip now. We've somehow managed to contaminate the fresh
water tanks with some salt water, it's OK to drink but a mildly salty
taste (we still have the reserve fresh water supplies which are OK), and
we still don't have a working desalinator although we have some plans to
fix the current one.
