Arrived in Tongareva

We arrived at the W-pass of Tongareva (Cook Islands, also known as Penrhyn) at 2 o’clock in the afternoon, went in without a prob with 1.5 knots of ingoing current against 12 knots of wind and some small standing waves in the very short pass. We anchored off the main village Omoka, the officials came by an hour later and cleared us in quickly. Now we’re free to explore Tongareva!

    And you crossed the date line, didn’t you? Now you are ahead of us by about 11 hours.

    Greetings from Germany! Have a happy time on Tongareva. We love your reports.

    Norbert and Rosi

      yes, the date line makes a funny detour around Kiribati, so we briefly crossed over and and then back again ;-)
      The Cooks have the same time zone as Tahiti UTC -10
