Farewell Va'vau

I enjoyed another pleasant evening with Chris and his family last night then this morning slipped the mooring and motored around to the customs wharf to complete clearing out procedures. Now we are running before a light easterly and the slight swell is causing the sails to slat intermittently – do I drop the main and set the drifter or just put up with it? For now I will wait a bit, the breeze is forecast to freshen tomorrow but I suspect it will be a bit of a drifter tonight.

All is well.
