Wild night, easy day


For the past couple of days the anchorage in Fare (Huahine) has had a very strong current – likely 2+ knots and a beam wind. This is a very uncomfortable setup as the current holds Reboot at 90 degrees to the wind. All of the wind force is converted to heal. Last night the wind really picked up at at about 9 pm it all went to heck as the sky opened up with thunder and lightning (the way you love me is frightening). At about midnight it settled down to a steady downpour for the rest of the night.Morning came and it was still drizzling. Today was the weather window so we put on our bathing suits and hauled anchor. About 2 nm off the island the sun broke through and the remaining 20 nm to Raiatai was beautiful. We are anchored inside the reef. Winds are about 15 – 20 and the waves are about 1.5 feet. Not the greatest anchorage but far better than we have had for the past 3 days. Off to explore.Fair winds and following seas 🙂
