Arrived in Fakarava

We’ve just arrived in Fakarava with northerly winds, anchored next to the pass in the N and will hop over to the neighbouring atoll Toau tomorrow morning when the wind switches to the east (it’s a tricky pass and in the morning we’ll have wind and current in the same direction).

The sail up here was quite boisterous with many squalls and a little front we had to cross with torrential rainfall and gusty wind, but fast sailing and we caught a big skipjack tuna (no sushi material, but great steaks–the cat had sashimi anyway and acknowledged the quality was at Leeloo-standards). Today we’re just resting, relaxing, catching up with emails and some cleaning–it’s incredibly minty all around :-) ).
