Next Step - 29th March 2020
Hopefully we will get into Papeete, Tahiti today..! During the night we had heavy rain and lightening but very little wind so progress was painfully slow. Land ahoy, at last we can see Tahiti on the horizon. By 1420 local time we were comfortably berthed in the Marina de Papeete. A couple, Gordon and Louise from Australia on a catamaran also in the marina welcomed us which was very nice. The marina is in the centre of Papeete opposite the commercial port, we arrived on Sunday and we did not see anyone on the street, all the shops and bars etc. were all shut. The pandemic control measures apply to us in the same way as they apply to the locals, so we are in effect boat bound for the foreseeable future.
