8:55.117s 140:06.18W     Taiohae Bay - Nuku Hiva
At 2am local time we finally put down the anchor in Taiohae Bay.  As expected Mike delivered us safely into the bay using radar, GPS and our very powerful spotlights.  I was very happy to hear the sound of the anchor winch and then the quiet as we shut down the engine - what a good performance from TIME2.   The total trip from San Diego has been 3058nm (5663kms) and taken a total of 402 hours. The non-stop crossing section from Turtle Bay took just over 15 days ..pretty good going!
This is the beautiful view we woke up to on Thursday morning - lush green mountains. And the bottle of champagne from our friends Dick and Jauhree we drank to celebrate.
