In Port Phaeton, Tahiti again

The last leg going back was an overnighter from Huahine to Tahiti. Hard on the wind for the duration of the trip but we made on one tack, and made good speed in 15-20 knots of wind. The forecast was for NE winds backing N then NW. This never happened, we had winds at ENE but our heading was about 110 degrees true, so it worked. Quite a wet ride, the only second time we had water sloshing over the side deck more or less continuously, the first time during the leg to Raiatea a couple weeks ago. Nothing broke and all is well. We’ve got some accumulated practical matters to tend to hear before continuing eastwards, probably within 2-3 weeks.
