We motored last night from Hiva-Oa to Nuku-Hiva. It was a crummy trip. Rain on and off. Beam seas all the way. With the broken rig the constant noise of the guy ropes stretching and slacking had my nerves on edge. We expected 24 hours but with slightly following seas we made it in 19. That was a great relief. We did diacover that one of the blocks had shattered but held together until we made it in. We areived in a blinding rainstorm just to add a little extra drama.
Fair winds and following seas :)
