We left Papeete for Pt Montt in Chile. The weather is good for the 1st part of the trip but the trip is long at 4,500nm. We hope for 17 days but we will need some help from the weather to get there. Pilot boarded at 0900 after immigration had left and with More in the foreground it was time to head on out. Tahiti has as it has for centuries been a great stop over. The people are so friendly. Communications will be spotty as we will have no internet for much of the trip but we will post when we can..
