Leaving the Tuamotus

We spent the last two days on the Southern side of Tahanea, checking out the bird motus there and counting nesting couples as we always do. There seem to be less every year, too many visiting locals (from Faaite) and cruisers drive them away…

It’s always hard to leave the Tuamotus and head towards the hustle and bustle of Tahiti, but we have to make some orders, organise some repairs, do tons of shopping and Papeete’s just a very convenient place for all that.
We’re just sailing towards the pass of Tahanea and then we’ll head downwind to Tahiti. 300 nm to go!
