Timshel - Mauritius to Reunion

Forgot to post for the short 130 mile leg. Not totally uneventful, a tight start that we stayed back from, then a few port and starboard incidents in the first 1/2 hour - nothing that we were involved in of course. A bit after the start the wind died, than came up so strongly that we had to reef immediately. So we had every wind strength from flat calm to F6 or so, every point of sail from dead downwind to a beat, so many sail changes. We arrived after 24 hours off Reunion, watched Adrienne ahead and inshore of us take her sails in and motor on so we did likewise - the cruising chute was hanging limp anyway. Berthed in the Harbour alongside Dave and Jill in AirPower. Then we had over a week of French bread and croissants, good food and wine, and interesting trips to the mountainous interior of the island including the active volcano.
