Next Step - 26th March 2020
Another relatively quite night with not a lot of wind, so we can expect a very warm day for us today with very few clouds in the sky. Lots of boat chores to do as always, including making water whilst the engine is running. The SSB radio has been a great way of finding out what other boats are doing and there plans once they get into Papeete. In the afternoon it got very warm so we relaxed and read books etc. we also spotted Marja II on AIS and made a quick call to her on the VHF
Land Ahoy! we had arrived close to the Tuomotu Islands the first land we have seen for almost 22 days. We took the engine out of gear off Kauehi atoll for an hour or so whilst Jeremy took some drone footage of us on the Pacific Ocean with the atoll behind. As we go into the evening, the weather is looking horrible with more heavy rain on the horizon.
