Arrived Sunday in Rongerik, RMI after a day sail in light winds from Rongelap. Our boat was rammed numerous times by a 15-20' shark about a half mile out while motoring toward the west pass. The loud "booms" were quite unsettling but in the end there was no significant damage other than the loss of some bottom paint. Stern reminder: DO NOT FALL OVERBOARD AT SEA!

Anchored Sunday off the village church at Rongelap Atoll, RMI to deliver supplies. Departed Majuro Friday morning and had a fast passage with wind mostly 20-25k, gusting 30, on the beam. Slowed the boat the last 24 hours and sailed under double reefed main and no genoa from 70 miles out to avoid arriving too early.
