Our overnight sail was pleasant as we had a full moon, unfortunately behind cloud, but it never fully got dark. One long tack took us slightly west of the northernmost islands of the Ha'apai group which we then sailed between to look for a suitable anchorage. This area was a bit exposed to the SE winds so we have come across to the East side of the island group where we are anchored on sand protected by the island and the reef beyond it.
We have seen whales close too today, breaching and then surfacing behind Serenity while we were sailing between the islands, but were to slow to get any photos, maybe next time.
