Enough electricity / 電力十分

We continue to make steady progress toward Hawaii with the expectation of having good winds from Thursday until our waypoint just south of the Big Island.   If all goes per plan,  we should get there March 17.   The winds after Hawaii currently look favorable.    

Electricity.  Solar array is putting out 10amps at peak hours and between that and occasionally motor sailing , we have had no issues with electricity supply and still have the refrigerator on.     We have not been using the hydorgenerator as we have not needed to and because it adds some drag.  

我々は順調にハワイ方面に向かっております。今週木曜日ごろからハワイ島のちょうど南あたりの通過ポイントの間はまた風に恵まれるとの予想です。もし予定通りになれば3月17日にはハワイ島周辺まで進路を進めることが出来るでしょう。現地店で見る限りハワイ諸島通過後の風は良さそうです。

電力に関して。太陽電池アレイはピーク時には10 amps発電しています。それと時折使っている機走から生じる電力により供給は問題ないので冷蔵庫を使えている状態です。水力発電機は推進力の邪魔にもなるので使っていないのが現状です。
