177 NM in one day

Our noon-to-noon mileage since yesterday was 177 nm, or an average of 7.3.

We had to work our way through some squslls in the morning, but by mid-afternoon the weather had cleared. However, the GRIB files have forecast a drop and wind and a change in direction to be more behind us. It's already happening. We're "creeping" along at 4.5 knots right now, and anticipating starting at least one engine at some time during the night.

Maybe in the morning we'll put up the big spinnaker, when we can see the squalls coming.

All is well. The crew is eating well and smiling. We have been dragging fishing lines, but so far no luck.

482 miles to go to Labuan, with fairly light air forecast the whole rest of the route.
At 7/19/2015 11:30 AM (utc) our position was 02°39.68'N 107°42.69'E
