Fragancia with her skipper and crew arrived to Tahiti, French Polynesia after two days sailing from Tuamotu islands!
We came as planned the third of August. It feels wonderful to achieve the goal for this year! Beautiful Tahiti! I have some repairs to do with the electrical system and the watermaker. Will stay a couple of weeks and do repairs. Then I will fly home to my wife Marianne and my family! Kids and grand-kids! Will be wonderful to see You again! ❤️
Fragancia arrived to Rangiroa atoll, Tuamotu, the worlds second largest atoll, on Friday the 13:th of July. We waited for one hour to let the current go down but it was still a strong current. With full speed on the motor and a little sail we came thru! Green standing waves and playing dolphins! 😀 Inside the lagoon the water was still and calm. We anchored next to catamaran Lotus who took the pictures. The little white dot the farthest to the right. We took the dinghy to Kia Ora Resort and had a nice sundowner in the bar!
Time to leave the Beautiful Marquesas archipellago! And all our friends and nice people on the islands! It feels so sad that tihs happy time takes sn end here today but we will move on to next archipellago later today. Tuamotu. First atoll will be Ahe. 500 M, 4 days run away. Then we sail to Rangiroa and wait for my norwegian friends to come! Will be so nice to see you soon! Soon my crew Dave Stuhlbarg and I will set sails and leave Oa pou, an island wich we both felt in love with!
Fatu Hiva! A beautiful island. Thor Heyerdahl found his Paradis Island and moved with his wife Liv to Fatu Hiva 1937. But they got ill and had to go home to Norway after a year. We had lovely hikes on the island. It’s beautiful!
