June 29, 2008 - Darwin Dash, Day 2

Last night, about 17 hours after departure from Port Orly, we finally found the wind and were able to shut down the engine. Shortly after we found the wind last night we found the swell. We've been sailing in a washing machine most of the day. We went into energy conservation mode. We both spent most of the day alternately napping and keeping watch. For dinner we had reheated mac n' cheese. At nightfall, just as we passed the 200 mile mark from shore, we started passing brightly lit fishing boats. Like floating cities, they were parked just beyond Vanuatu's 200 mile limit.
