Jun 2, 2014 FAKARAVA, TUAMOTUS
We were hoping to catch the tail of the yesterday’s strong wind to fill up the sails all the way to Fakarava. We woke up to light wind, which means motoring again.
Fakarava is the second largest Tuamotus atoll 32nm long and 15nm wide. The northern, northeastern and southeastern have lots of small island covered by palm trees. Ratoava the main village is located on the northeast of the atoll.
After motoring 42 nautical miles we dropped anchored beside of our South African friends who we met in several bay in the Marquesas.
