On our way from Fakarava to Tahiti
Position: 16:09.89 S 145:58.92 W
It is noon, Tahiti time. We are sailing downwind for just the genoa in 15 knots of wind. The sun is bright, and the weather forecast is good, less wind for the rest of the passage. The total is 246 nm. We plan to do it in 48 – 50 hours. Slow, but we have to spend two nights, and we must arrive in daytime. The pass into Papeete is an all tides pass, so we need not care about that.
Just before I write this we shared a pompelmus. Very sweet, very good. Lunch is not until 1:30 pm.
This is cruising the south seas at its best.
