Arrived in Hao

Today this rather nasty passage ended on a very positive note: after tacking at 4 o’clock in the morning we sailed really fast up on the last leg north, caught 2 yellow fin tunas off Hao, made it just before sunset to the pass and found just the right conditions to go into the lagoon. Hao’s pass is infamous for strong currents up to 20 knots and difficult timing, but we had an ingoing current of 3 knots and made it without any problems. Exactly 3 days from pass to pass… Now we’re anchored just inside the pass (instead of tacking up and down waiting for daylight, hurray), just had sashimi and will now fall into the bunk :-)
