Report from Peter at Maritime Radio at 1838 last night.
Currently 55nm sse from Amadee light. left 6pm last evening.There will be no report for 2 days as GHRadio is away. I may get a report from Maritime in which case i will pop it in. They are at 0800627 48 463 and are happy to give position reports to family.
Clearing process this morning in Noumea then departing this afternoon. It takes a while to walk to Customs, then Immigration, then a long walk around the waterfront past the Maritime Museum, to get to the port captain for the final sign off.
Anchored at Tiare. Squeezed in a final surf at Tenia this morning then beat into 20-25 knot headwinds all afternoon to shakedown the two new crew. This anchorage is a bit rolly in SE conditions it transpires, I would prefer to be just around the headland back in La Guerre or Baie Maa.
Anchored beside Ducos Island, two new crew collected from airport, embarked MD at Ouenghi.
