Speaking to some of the crew that sailed with us on the 40 odd boats in the NZ Island cruising rally here, many were sick and 4 boats had to turn around and go back to Opua because of breakages. Normally boats have to go into Nukualofa harbor to check in here and the officials come aboard, but we tagged along behind the rally boats and were able to check in at "Big Mama's" with them.
We chose to do 2 hours on and 4 off for our nighty watches so I ended up doing the 8pm to 10pm and 2am to 4am shifts. During the day we each napped at different times.
Most of the time while I was on watch and even during the day, I listened to music, did Sudoku puzzles and read a book on my Nook.
Our fruits and vegetables lasted well over the week with a cabbage, half a lettuce and some celery left along with some apples. You are not supposed to bring in any to Tonga so we made sure that we only bought enough for the voyage. There is supposed to be a good market here in Nukualofa so I will restock our supplies of fruits and vegetables hopefully today.
