Sad to say but after nearly 8 weeks we set sail today from French Polynesia, last port of call was Bora Bora. this was our original last port but due to some issues WARC changed it to Raiatea. We left Raiatea on Sunday, but due to forecast very light winds we only went as far as Bora Bora, and we were glad we did, great island and two very welcoming 'Yacht Clubs' Restauarants/hotels really.
We should now be on our way to an uninhabited island called Suwarrow, about 680 miles from Bora Boira, but we figure since we are late we will aim to get to the next place Niue, where the porgramme sounds great. One potential problem is there is a bad bit of weather on Sunday, so we may well divert further North than our current plan, we will be watching this very carefully.If we do go norht it could be to Suwarrow or maybe Samoa, we do at least have some options.
