The morning was almost magic. The full moon going down in the west sky, the sun rising in the east. For a short time the sunlit sky and the moon fought about beein the most dominating source of light. Just sfter sunrise the clouds got their golden eges, and the moon was gone.
 
No more luck fishing.
 
Had a chat with Olav on Alutia on the SSB this morning, pretty good reseption, even with Fatu Hiva’s high mountains between us. Used 12.359 kHz, and if anyone listens, we shall try the same frequecy tomorrow at 1730 UTC.
Alutia reports 15 boats in the harbour, Jovial will arive this afternoon. It is very nice there, and worth every minute of the crossing Smilefjes
