sailing to papua new guinea

this was not the best of the crossings; it was rolly and we had many days without much wind, so we used the engine quite a bit and also we had some bad storms specially the last few days.
when we left vanuatu we bought some suspicious ground beef…. It was lethal. we were sick for several days from food poisoning, not the best feeling on a rolling boat, so it was truly not our best crossing. but the fishing was great. a different tuna every other day, not a bad lunch once we decided to eat again…. in all we sailed close to 1500 nautical miles. it was longer than expected…
