Arrived in Tikehau

We arrived 2 days ago in Tikehau after a rough last day with winds well above 20 knots (feels more when you’re bashing into it close-hauled), went through the pass with first daylight and were glad to have tracks inside the lagoon from a previous visit. That early in the morning with the sun low above the horizon it’s impossible to spot coral heads under the glittery surface of the sea, so following a GPS track is the only safe way to make it to the protected side of the lagoon.

It’s been blowing hard ever since, but we managed to get the foresail down in between 2 squalls, dry it in between 2 squalls, so we can repair it today: during the rough passage the seams of a previous repair got ripped out–today we’ll put double seams that’s for sure ;-)
