Yesterday we motored out through the shallow pass of Faaite with the last light and set sail towards Tahiti (240 nm). We set out in calm conditions and the wind has gradually picked up, so that we’re sailing along swiftly, but in still rather calm seas under sunny skies. That kind of start is much more pleasant than swapping from the lagoon to rough ocean conditions (and get seasick immediately…).
During the night a high swell from the Southwest has arrived and now Pitufa is lifted up 2 to 3 metres each time one of these long, azure hills passes under the keel. 150 nm to go!
