Farewell Fakarava; Epic Voyage to Tahiti - Our Fastest Sail Ever! | Episode 255

Welcome back to our sailing circumnavigation story! This week finds us still at the South Pass of Fakarava, one of our favorite atoll islands in the Tuamotus, and one of the best scuba diving spots in the world. Unfortunately we witness first hand the devastating effects of climate change, and decide to take our last days here alternatively for activities that don't bring tears to our eyes, and spend a whole day at Pink Sands Beach with fellow sailors Brian & Kazza on SV Delos. After that very enjoyable beach day we say goodbye to Fakarava and set sail for Tahiti, which in the past has typically taken us two days to complete, however some very strong winds combined with a faster boat now because of our clean bottom and folding props, we see out fastest speeds ever! We end up averaging 7 knots speed the whole way and drop anchor in the dark, luckily we know the area and the anchorage very well so there is no issues, and we get the wake up the next day nestled in the beauty and protection of Moorea's beautiful mountains.
