The skies were clear and the seas cooperative. Today we continued our passage to Tonga. We have yet to see another vessel in the ocean while crossing. It seems that everyone has gotten over their seasickness and the clear skies and calm seas are beautiful. Today in MTE class we went over basic navigational tools and started to become familiar with charting. A few of us spotted a whale cruising along side the boat about 20 meters off the stern. We have an estimated four more days until we reach the Kingdom of Tonga.
