Noumea - Here we come!


It's 9:30PM Wednesday. We are now just 350 Nautical Miles from Noumea motor sailing as the wind is light (5 knots). The seas are pretty calm and the moon is shining. On passage we have had some brilliant sun sets. Flying fish on the deck as well as some unwelcome birds hitching a ride and leaving many deposits behind for me to clean up. We should be in Noumea Saturday evening.

Noumea, here we come!

At last the weather looks good for a passage across to Noumea. We plan to review the weather later today with the view to departing the marina Sunday morning. Not early!
