Tāua e Moana Voyage – Day 1 Update


Popongi tatou katoatoa, 
Apologies for the late updates due to some small technical issues to our uuplus email, but this have been rectified. We are now parked in Arutanga wharf awaiting our day program.

The trip from Raro was a good shake up for the canoe and the crews. Seas were up to 3.5m to 4 meters swells with wind steady at 18kts to 20kts. The canoe feels at home and she made very good speed. At 2am in the morning we were about 20nm from Aitutaki therefore we dropped sails and basically drifted into the island waiting for daylight to make our way in through the Arutanga passage.

I am really happy how the crews handled the canoe in this condition  and hopefully the trip onwards will be easier.

We will be in Aitutaki till Saturday or Monday, yet to be confirmed.
