Smooth Sailing To Tahanea Atoll in the Tuamotus

We arrived this morning to Tahanea Atoll after a quick, smooth sail from Makemo. We ended up arriving here around 3 am so, again, we hove to in order to wait until the sun came up and the tides were right for a safe entry. The entry into the pass went perfectly this time (as did our exit from the pass in Makemo) as we had about 1 knot of flood current. We actually sailed through rather than motoring. We are now anchored here and enjoying the beautiful clear water at this uninhabited island. Tomorrow morning we plan on doing another drift snorkel of the pass.
