Wednesday May 9, 2007 - Taiohai Bay, Nuka Hiva, Marquesas

09 May 2007 | D'Hakahau Bay, Oa-Pou, Marquesas

The wind today was from the east-northeast at 8-12 knots which means the 28 mile sail from Oa-Pou was close-hauled on a starboard tack. I saw some birds working but caught no fish. Otherwise, it was a very pleasant passage.

The town of Taiohai Bay in Nuka Hiva is the largest settlement in the Marquesas with 1600 people and, believe it or not, there is wifi service in the anchorage! The speed is slow at 128 bps but the price is right, only US$6/hour. Tomorrow I will try to hook up to the wifi and also blow up the dinghy so I can go ashore and see the sights. There are 32 other boats in the anchorage but the bay is very large and could accommodate 200 boats. There is no swell so I expect a very calm night on the hook.

All else is well. I wish it were a bit cooler during the day.
