Stuck in the Moment and we can't get out of it...

Aitutaki is going to become familiar. We looked at heading back in to tahiti 600nm up wind..

But after a bit it made more sense to go back and re anchor as poor an anchorage as it is behind the Island. We could be here a good few days as a very high pressure squeezes the isobars and we end up with winds in the 30's and gusting higher and the seas are about 18' or 5m Too for now we wait behind this tropical paradise.. You can see the wind in the sky...
