Those far away places with the strange sounding names...

In Marina Pape'ete, Pape'ete, Tahiti, Society Islands, (French) Polynesia. (Our dock master tells us we are in Polynesia and the heck with the French!)

This has been the port where "Pacific Crossing 2016" has really sunk in. We did it. Yes, thousands of nautical miles behind us, thousands more to go but here we are.

Three days and two nights from Rangiora babying the rig as it is still not all replaced. Had to motor (I know, I know) the last sixty miles as the wind was below 3 knots. Got in in the middle of the night but Passage Pape'ete is open and easy.

Reboot is the little thing in the back of the huge boats. Better picture tomorrow when the sun is the other way.

Fair winds and following seas :)

More on the Indonesian volcano. We are now 300 nautical miles west of it. We met many nice people in our visit to the area. We hope the are all safe.
