Enroute to New Caledonia

Tonga was a short stop for us, two days in Neafu harbor and last night anchored at Ovalau island. It was busy with lots of tasks. We had a new clew sewed in the mainsail, filled the propane, filled with diesel, bought vegetables, dropped Jenny at the airport, and dropped of a crew member that was not working out. And don't forget the check-in and check-out procedures which can and do take hours and hours. We have one reef in the main and the working jib out making about 9 knots. The waves are fairly large because it's been blowing 25 to 30 knots for quite a while now but we should sail out of the stronger winds in a day or so.
