We finally got a weather window this morning and headed West. We sailed about 40 miles and had a pretty good sail. Of course, Doug (sailor boy) had to make it interesting and kept us on our toes changing sail configurations. Gotta go fast, ya know!
Moondance and Evergreen are currently anchored off the island of Faaite. Wish we had time to explore this beautiful island, but we leave at 5am heading to the southern end of Fakarava. The pass into the lagoon of Fakarava is supposed to be a little challenging, so we want to make sure we make slack tide, which is at 8am. Plus, we should have good light so that we can spot the coral heads. Oh my!
Fakarava has lots of amenities, so we will be able to provision, plus do some exploring. It is also famous with the cruisers for the drift dive/snorkel through the pass - it is supposed to be amazing. Doug is excited to try it. Me, well... we shall see!
