We left Moorea just a few hours ago (it seems) and already we’re off Huahine, located some 9 miles to port. We’ll be on this course (311T) for another 2-3 hours, and then bear off for the 48 mile slide downhill to cross the north end of Bora Bora.
The day has gone well, no squalls, good clear sky, wind has been steadily dropping and now we’re seeing 18-22 from the ENE. The swell has been decling but still very bumpy lumpy, what with two swell trains running and lumpy wind waves on top of that. Kristen is unimpressed with the swell’s behavior. I kind of thing it’s not too bad, though Beetle does occasionally lurch about a bit.
All is good on board, hopefully this will be a nice evening on the water.
