Arrived, shaken but not stirred

Just a quick update to say that we have anchored safely in Aneityum at 20 14.27s 169 46.54e
We arrived in rain squalls and 22 - 27 knots of wind, with a minor drama of a fouled headsail furler requiring Graham to scale the mast in 25 knots to clear a wrapped spinnaker halyard that was stopping us from rolling up the sail. However, that was sorted successfully (and there's nothing like a drama to finish off a bit of an epic sail) and we are delighted to be stationary for the first time in a week!
We're celebrating with our first beer and wine since we left Opua and something tells us we'll sleep well for the rest of the night!
Happy fathers' day to Brian, Geoff and Mark from Dianne, Graham and Laura
