The winds tend to increase mid morning so up at first light to leave my idyllic beach where I spent a soliotary but wonderful weekend sharing it with afew dolphins and bathed in the rich smell of the maquiis.There is a cruiseliner in port today so it has been drumming all day and the boys racing the ships boats in their canoes.
Tomorrow I shop and then set off for Pappete to get there in plenty of time for Penny to arrive on the 9th .It is approx 750nm but has many hazards as it means crossing the Tauramatolas with their many reefs.No sleep on this one and of course the wind seems to be dropping
