We left Huahine this morning after another night of gusty winds.The anchorage on the reef was said to be good ton 20knt but we had 25 knt gusts from varying directions and although we did not drag sleep was disturbed. We sailed under jib the 20 nm to Faaroa Bay , adeep inlet on Raitoa ´s east coast only to find the wind stronger in the way than out of it.This eveningn the wind has gone completely so hopefully a good nights sleep.Batteries charged and water tanks full.
We share the anchorage again with the American yacht ´Moonbeam ´.The approach to the bay through the reeefs was beautiful past deserted motu in a turquoise sea but in here it is cloudy from the mangroves.Tomorrow we will move to the west side.
Last night we reached the final episode of ´Spooks ´ so no videos left unwatched . Sorry to say goodbye to Harry Pearce and co..
