Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

This is the blog of Maunie of Ardwall charting our adventures as we sail around the world. This season we spent 5 months exploring Vanuatu and are now on the east coast of Australia.

Tahiti - Land Ho!

 
Stormvogel passes the north coast of Tahiti
 
After the tiny, low-lying atolls of the Tuamotu, Tahiti looks very impressive (it's mountains range up to over 2000m). We closed in at Point Venus (where Captain Cook set up an observatory to study the planet) at about 7.00am and we are now sailing down the north west coast towards the very industrial looking port.
 
It's been an excellent, fast passage and we can almost taste the fresh croissants!
