We're In... Hiva Oa landfall

We made it in to Hiva Oa a couple of days ago after having to stand off the island overnight and ride out 10 squalls (with 30 knot winds).  We are all very glad to be able to go on land.  The kids have made friends with kids from two other boats already.

Now we just have to pick up the pieces.  Lots of wet things to dry out, and repairs to be made.  Oh... and a mountain of laundry.  Pictures to come - both from the passage, and from Polynesia.  We are well, and thanks for the good wishes.

Congratulations. We were a little concerned when nothing had been posted for such a long time. Glad to hear you made it safely. Did the crossing meet your expectations?

I'd like to know what the deepest water was that you sailed over. This is to feed my awe of the ocean.

I look forward to more in-depth writing.
