We left Niue yesterday morning having realised, while talking to another couple, that going to Tonga entails losing a day. If we left on Tuesday morning just over two days sailing and we would arrive on Friday. If we left too late then we would not be able to clear customs in Tonga until Monday and would not be allowed ashore until then!
So yesterday we motored in almost flat calm and then 5 o'clock this morning were able to sail, at least we are well on our way. We are actually heading for the Vava'u group of islands and will then work our way south through the Ha'apai group and on to Tongatapu over the next month.
