We are anchored out at Pokai Bay. It is only 8 miles north of the Marina, but feels so much better. Anchored in a beautiful bay surrounded by the immense Waianae Mountain range. Pretty impressive and we only have to share it with one other boat.
We had forgotten how much we enjoy being "on the hook". It is a little rolly, but we are used to that and the sunset was spectacular. Dinner and a movie and then we turn in early.
Tomorrow, we start our sail to Fanning Island - approximately 8 days due south. As of now, it looks like we have found a good weather window. Hope it holds for the whole trip.
Cross your fingers!
