Night start

It looked as though we wouldn’t have any wind until the end of the week, but this morning we woke at 2, because the boat was pitching in a steady breeze. Rather than being uncomfortable at anchor, we thought we’d use the breeze to sail. So we quickly tidied up the boat, put the dinghy on deck (not easy in the dark while pitching) and left through the S pass of Fakarava at 3. We sailed out into a wonderfully starry night, now the sky is getting light ahead. 40 nm to go to Tahanea!
