This morning Lynn announced that Spill The Wine was getting a spa day. Need to clean her up to get her ready for Nancy who will be joining shortly. We had some laundry done at Hiva Oa, but today we discovered an unfortunate lot of clothing that had been seawatered. That’s what happens when you leave ports open with high seas. Which is to say it’s not the first time. So that’s done. Bunch of things put away. More to do but shipshape is within sight!
I went off watch at 9pm. It was quite cloudy. Now back on at midnight and the clouds are gone. And every night the moon gets bigger. I can use the light. Not that there are any other boats out here. Big Empty. Not complaining about anything. No clouds means no squalls.
Banana pancakes are on the horizon. Because all the bananas ripen at once eh? Don’t come down here if you don’t like bananas.
Beyond pancakes and cleaning is planning the arrival to Rangiroa. No night arrival. Mid-day would be optimal. So need to figure out if we need to go faster or slower to time the arrival. And we have all day to do that figuring. I will consult with the wind…
