It was only a 90 mile sail from Moorea to Huahine - a short overnighter - no worries mate. But it definitely turned out to be more challenging than expected - especially the last half of the trip:
-- lots of boat traffic (we aren't used to that)
-- winds gusting over 30
-- confused seas and large swells
-- rain, rain, and more rain
-- and a crazy freighter that came way too close (Thanks Carol for the tip)!
We dropped our anchor, had lunch, and went down for a 2-hour nap. We were pooped.
Tomorrow, we will start exploring Huahine, which is supposed to have the best beaches in the country. Can't wait!
