Finally the sun is out! The batteries are charging! Very light breeze, pleasant sailing with the spinnaker up. Ronnie said he is rested and feeling much better.
He also got "macgyver" on his auto pilot. I'm not really sure what he meant, because he left me a voicemail. That either means he turned it into something else that would be useful or fixed it. I will ask him the next time he calls.
I found out today after calling at&t that it does cost money when I call Ronnie. Let's just say free mobile to mobile does not include international mobile satellite phones. Eating ramen tonight to make up for the call.
He also text that this is the first beautiful evening in the trades. Breeze is still light, around 12 knots. The auto pilot is steering to apparent wind now and 1269 miles to Hawaii!
