Arrived Niue

We are happy to report that after an easy 48 hour passage, Soggy Paws is on a mooring at the Niue Yacht Club.

The wind has already gone east of south, but the swell is still coming from the SSW, but lots better than yesterday. We are rolling some, but it should get better over the next few days.

A few of the World ARC Rally boats have also just arrived today, and they are having a BBQ tonight ashore for them, and we get to go.

We have already seen our first sea snake.

Passage Summary: 264 NM, almost exactly 48 hours anchor to anchor, for an average speed of 5.5 knots. We motored a few hours to get in and out of the anchorages, and for an hour or two once a day to top up the batteries.

More on Niue later.
