We arrived in Toau after a very slow, short sail using our gennaker for the first time in ages. Of course it got tangled up and twisted and took a long time to figure out again ;-)
The pass is tricky as it’s very shallow and open to the east (prevailing winds), but our timing was good.
Just after arriving we snorkeled between the passes, a real aquarium with lots of grey reef sharks.

Yesterday we’ve sailed down to the south of the lagoon for the more SE-erly wind and are anchored off a bird motu–only a few people live on Toau or visit from neighbouring Fakarava.
