Rarotonga - Sailing away

Thursday morning. Up at 7, not that we are in a hurry, but today is the
day to go. First, like everyday, breakfast, then harbour master to
recover the clearance.
Then, taking our time, we prepared the boat, put everything away, did a
bit of cleaning, cast the mooring, heave up the anchors and get out to
meet again with the huge Pacific swell, the heavy rolling with 25 knots
of wind from SSE.
We have 830 miles to go and should get to Neiafu within about 6 days.

Hé Papy Jovial,

Ici Carole Devillers. Je viens de passer un mois en Haiti sur un projet d'étude des grottes - - et j'ai passé quelques jours a Pestel ou tout le monde demande pour toi.
A quelle adresse email peut-on t'écrire?

J'habite Albuquerque NM depuis fin 2000 quand j'ai quitté Haiti.

Bons vents et a bientot j'espere,
