Back in Tahiti

Last night we reached Tahiti at 1 o’clock in the morning after a very rough ride with 20 to 30 knots of easterly wind. In the lee of the big island seas and wind calmed down quickly and as it was a moonlit night we decided to sail in through the pass south of Taina Marina. Even with a GPS track and lit markers it’s still a bit exciting to go through a small pass in the reef with noisy breakers left and right… We dropped the hook just next to the pass in the basin south of Marina Taina, quickly tried to desalt at least the cockpit and the aftdeck (Leeloo was of course quicker and happily jogged around the whole deck and jumped up the Bimini before we could stop her), opened a bottle of bubbly and enjoyed the perfectly calm lagoon anchorage. Soooo nice when the boat finally stands still again!
