At Anchor Baie De' l'Orphelinat. Wind ESE 25  - 30 Knots
Hi All,
Had a great sail around from Baie De Prony today - at one stage we were averaging 8 knots with a top speed of 10.4 knots recorded in the instruments. Due to a lack of space here at the Port Moselle Marina, we have been forced to anchor out in the bay. Hopefully the wind will ease off overnight and we will be able to have a quiet night at rest.
This evening we will head across the Cercle Nautique Caledonia for a few drinks and dinner, before beginning our exploration of Noumea tomorrow.
Until tomorrow, TTFN
