Yesterday, we started the day with the idea of sailing back to Tahiti. This idea was soon a litteral blowout when we pulled out of the Opunohu bay anchorage and found 20-25 knots of wind on on the nose... Tahiti would have to wait. Hoping for a fresh Tuna we deployed our lines and bashed the few miles into nearby Cooks Bay, Moorea. Once inside Cooks the wind disappeared completely as we lay in the protection of the steep surrounding peaks.
We made a round of the anchorage to meet the neighbors and make dinner plans with s/v Tanga with Tom and Monica aboard. Pizza ashore was superb and a great treat.
That's it for now.
