Pacific Crossing – Day 27 – Landfall!!

We made landfall this morning and are only 9 miles away from Atuona!  Heaving-to last night sucked; we had winds over 20 knots and a huge swell all night.  The sunrise was glorious.  We can now see the colors on the islands.  Still can’t smell anything yet since we are up wind.  Feels great to see land again.

We are sailing west towards Atuona with the towering rugged cliffs of Hiva Oa off the starboard beam.

Much to do in preparation for anchoring bow and stern.  Will email again once rested.
