We are safe in harbor in Tahiti! Had a wonderful few day's sail from the Tuamotu. We have arrived with full fuel tanks from San Francisco. Yea sail, wind and solar power! No major breakages of any kind and Privateer is in her element. Clearing customs tomorrow morning and will try to get a regular e-mail connection after that.

Love to all.

Made 142 miles noon to noon yesterday, deep reaching in light winds with Monitor steering the way. We are passing the uninhabited island of Meetia right now, only a few miles to our south. Approaching Tahiti tonight with an ETA tomorrow afternoon. Amazing we still have full fuel tanks from san Francisco! Light breezes and smooth seas, ghosting along nicely tonight.

Exited Tahanea atoll yesterday morning and are under 1st reef main and yankee, on a deep reach toward Papeete, Tahiti! Gentle seas and 15 knot breeze. Fabulous snorkeling in the Tuamotus, magical underwater kingdom! Glad we escaped the "Dangerous" archipelago unscathed--saw a huge wreck on the horizon yesterday. Will send pics from Papeete.
