As is usual with sailing, the wind is playing funny buggers. On the nose whichever way we were heading, or else very light, or from a perfect direction and strong once its too late to make landfall before dark..which was what happened yesetrday afternoon . So we arrived off Futuna just after sunset and too late to go into the Port so we hove to - sort of - 8 miles off and have been waiting for the sun to return before heading in. Very broken re4stless sleeping...if it was sleeping at all.
Once in I go ashore, get my passport stamped IN and OUT then head back to the boat and sail back to Fiji. Hope to be back SUnday evening or Monday am.
No dramas getting here - except for the wind - but one can never be sure what's around the corner.
Sunrise is in one hour.
