Sailing Tahiti to Australia | Month 2

Here is what our second month living on our boat, Hanavave, in Tahiti, French Polynesia, was like.

Our trip to Australia was delayed due to port closures throughout the South Pacific. We spent the month making improvements to Hanavave so that we could make the passage to Australia with fewer stops.

We celebrated Jana’s 43rd birthday, spent more time in Ha’apiti Bay on the island of Mo’orea, near Tahiti, and also did some more exploring of Tahiti itself. Jana, Jack, and Stella completed their PADI Open Water Diving Certification at Eleuthera Dive Center with Marie-Charlotte, their awesome dive instructor.

We added another crew member, Evan, from Salem, MA, who will help us with the long trip. The time has finally come to leave Tahiti and make the passage to Australia, which could take up to 30 days at sea. Our current plan is to head off at the end of this week, stopping in Mo’orea, Raiatea and Bora Bora before leaving beautiful French Polynesia and heading for Samoa.
