Miles to go: 391

We really enjoyed our time in the Marquesas, but it was time to move on and make the 520 mile passage south to the Tuamotu Archipelago of French Polynesia.

In spite of setting off in brisk conditions, things soon settled down and the clouds which seemed to continually envelop the mountains of Nuku Hiva soon gave way to a clear blue sky not far offshore.

We had a comfortable first night and are delighted that, following skipper's repairs to the DuoGen, we are back to full power-generating mode.

Enjoying the ride so far.
