Still another day of weak winds that saw him eke out barely 7 nm made good for the 24-hr period and, of that, just 1 nm since last night. 

He described the seas as flat and virtually windless. "I think the wind is either zero, or maybe sometimes 3 kts," he guessed. The Kurosio Current, his one source of reprieve from a dead stop, is edging him closer to Ogasawara, now 136 nm away.

He did see 19 nm of DOG (distance overground) that took him up northward about 9 nm, then back south again the same amount as he jibed yesterday. At 0800, he reported a boat speed of about 1 kt on a heading of 220-240°.

No adverse weather is seen on ClearPoint, other than occasional passing squalls.
