We had a rough sail from Lifou down to Havannah passage,with headwinds of 25 kts.Allthough close hauled on waypoint outside Havannah passage,the seas where rough and gave us a "wet sail".Entering Havannah passage at 4 0´clock was easy with 4kts of tidal stream from behind,full moon,and good leading(and working)lights.We came in to Port Moselle around lunchtime and managed to clear immigration within an hour.At the "Visitors dock"where we were advised to moore,are some Swedish compatriots moored as well(Hokus Pokus,Panacea,and Lovisa coming in).The plan is "service/cleaning day today,and tomorrow going out in the archipelago for som days.We will return to Port Moselle for the inevitable end on Monday and hope to bring some pictures for the blog.
