Nuku'alofa, Tongatapu, Kingdom of Tonga
Monday 4th November 2013
Distance run: 85 nmiles
We arrived in Tongatapu, the southern group of islands this morning early, and anchored off Big Mama's Beach Resort, about a mile out of Nuku'alofa, the capital and home of the Tongan Royal family. We had planned to stop at the island of Kelefesia in the Ha'apai group, but when we arrived there were already three boats in the small anchorage and we decided not to stop. The winds were very light and we bobbed slowly the 37 nmiles to Tongatapu.
We have to check in here as it is a different island group, but as today is a public holiday, we will do the formalities tomorrow.
