Underway for Tuamotus

June 23, 2012
Underway Position at 4PM local: 09°53.4811 S 140°10.4739 W

Pulled anchor this morning to take advantage of a decent weather window to the Tuamotu. We don't have a specific destination in mind aside from heading as far South in the archipelago as the prevailing SE trade winds will allow. Hoping for a few stopovers at the lesser traveled atolls. Of particular interest is Fangatau atoll near 15°50 S 140°52 W which appears to have a manmade small boat pass blasted through the reef on the South shore. The pass might be 30' wide and is of unknown depth. If we have the weather we might swing by to take a look. With another 4 months on our French Polynesian visa we'll linger in the Tuamotu before heading West.

That's it for now.
