Raro Tonga Cook Islands South Pacfic
28 April 2008 | Gabriellla
No moon and many stars until aftermidnight. Gabriella has been mainly motoring a wind came up up dead on our nose. In the hour of 3 a.m. we passed Crisis Mode out in the distance. As the sun rose we passed the Island of Atiu, since there is no harbor just a possible day anchorage on the 90 foot reef we continued on in to the grey raining morning wondering if we will see the sun today. One fish on the line escaping safely to the sea and we have traveled 456 miles. Today the wind is light and we have the jib out, 80 more miles to Rarotonga! We need to enter the harbor in daylight so I imagine our race will be a mutual tie. It is comforting to know Crisis Mode is out to sea with us and we will enter safe harbor together.
