we are writing from Bora Bora. Last shopping and refueling has been done.
Only our anchor holds us here. Within hours, we will lift it to head westward again. Behind us almost 1700 nautical miles sailed throughout French Polynesia. A territory as big as Europe with scattered islands and archipelagos to discover. We have had a great time, and despite the fact that it has been a tough decision, we have decided to spend the cyclone season in New Zealand. We will leave the French Islands behind to head to the Cook Island. Weather permitting it will be Aitutaki. Before that and if the southern swells allow us to franchise the pass, we will try to enter Maupiti tomorrow at sunrise.
After the Cooks we will spend some time in the only none colonized country of the Southern Ocean, the Kingdom of Tonga.
From there we will head South to New Zealand to reunite us with the Kiwis and spend Christmas with them.
We have updated a few posts on the blog. But believe it or not, we have not had much time these last weeks so many articles are not translated to english. Be patient. We will eventually do it and hopefully be able to do so during the next 1500 miles that we will be sailing over the next 20 days.
All the best to all of you, we do think about every one of you very often.
