Our five day passage from Fiji (Robinson Crusoe or Likuri Island) to New Caledonia was delightful.  Most of the time the winds were light, which was fine with us.  We did change our nominal destination a couple of times as weather conditions changed or we got more information, but the net result was that we ended up in Noumea.

The following are our noon positions and statistics:
