Almost there!

Yesterday the wind got quite strong, in the evening we put the mainsail into the second reef–a wise measure: during the night we had up to 30 knots of wind. The Gambier Islands are just 50 nm away now and in order to arrive there in daylight we now have to deliberately slow down, which feels funny after crawling along for a week wishing for more speed. We still can’t quite believe that our first southsea atoll will appear on the horizon soon. Visiting such remote islands in the South Pacific was the reason why we set out. Until now we always felt like we were only passing by on the way, but now we get to the destination of our dreams.
