We are only 15 miles from Aitutaki at 7:30 AM this morning. We expect to arrive in a couple of hours in light winds. The pass here is particularly challenging – very narrow, and very shallow. But, we should make it since a boat just like ours has anchored there before. Aitutaki is in the Cook Islands, and is a beautiful atoll with a nice island surrounded by a shallow lagoon and coral reefs. We expect to spend several days here before moving to Raratonga to drop off Jason and Lara for their flight to New Zealand.
UPDATE: We arrived safely at 9:30 AM local time and got through the pass without a problem. We are anchored just outside the harbor. It’s a beautiful place which we hope to enjoy thoroughly for the next few days.
