On Passage to Tuamotus
01 July 2012 | 13 53.850'S:144 06.828'W, the ocean
We are about 1 day out from Fakarava. Second biggest atoll in the Tuamotus. Third biggest atoll in the world. We are very much looking forward to some snorkeling and diving!! The weather has been nearly calm. So we have had to motor rather than sail.
Yesterday we had a fun surprise. Out in the middle of nowhere we found Ruby Soho. Another sailboat, that we first met in Shelter Bay in Panama. They first spotted us on AIS. A few hours later we were 20feet apart. They threw us some freshly made rolls, and we threw them some freshly caught Mahi, and a bit of sail repair tape.
Its kind of strange and fun to see other boats out here in the middle of the ocean--especially when its people you know! We knew they were out here as they left Daniels bay, Nuku Hiva the night before we left. But we didn't expect to see them out here. Maybe we should call them Ruby SlowPoke heh heh.
It would be funnier if we were sailing rather than motoring.
Our position is as of 6:30 local, 16:30zulu. SOG 5.6kts. COG 204 Mag.
We should spot our first atoll in the Tuamotus group sometime early this afternoon. At least I hope we spot it!!! After all, tuamotus means dangerous islands, because they are low lying and hard to see. Plus large portions of the atolls are really just shallow underwater reefs.
