Spent the day after clearing customs ans shopping preparing the boat for the 1200nm sail to Apia , Samoa .
The forecast is good  and we should be able to keep north of an area of stronger winds . The genset seems to be working satisfactorilly at last so we leave with the bow tank empty but expect to fill it with our own water in the first 24 hrs.The water here is not very tasty .
We may visit Suwarrow Atoll on the way for a few days rest and conrmplation .
