Tikehau is only 45 nautical miles absent from Rangiroa but with sailing you can find so significantly much more to a journey than just a length. We have to leave Tikehau with enough light so we can see the bommies that threaten our route out of this atoll. We are sailing versus the wind and prevailing swell so it really is likely to be tough…which will slow us down.
We are sailing to just one of the most dangerous passes in the Tuamotu Archipelago. We ought to get there at slack tide or we are gonna die (at the very least that’s what all the ‘cautionary tales’ on the world-wide-web say).
Pile all these fear mongering tales with an remarkable begin of five+ knot recent pushing us out of Tikehau, then leading that with a busted starter causing our engine to fail and we now have an nervousness pie. What need to have been a wonderful, quick sail turned into a worry induced motor repair service bashing. Hooray Boats!
A single factors for sure, you can find hardly ever a dull instant in this sailing life of ours. In the stop we get the sour so we can savor the sweet…and Rangiroa is supposed to be just one of the very best places in the earth for SCUBA Diving Sailors like us.
