Sept. 23, 10:00 a.m. HST--The wind speed has dropped to below 10 knots, blowing from E to NE. The crew put on larger sails for the light winds. Hokule'a is making 3 knots, sailing Noio Malanai (SE by E) on a heading for Pitcairn. The weather is clear and sunny, with cumulus clouds; nights are chilly, so the crew has been bundling up in fleece and foul weather jackets and pants.
