This week we leave Majuro and travel 240 miles north to Ailuk Atoll, in what we think is a good weather window. It turns out that we time it perfectly so that we have to dodge squalls that come across every hour or so!
Mark and Angie from ‘Uno Mas’ were about five to ten miles in front of us and missed just about every squall, so if we had started our trip an hour earlier we would have had a much smoother trip!
Once in the shelter of Aur and Maloelap atolls we have some lovely sailing and the squalls lessen as we near Ailuk. After waiting for good light we negotiate the reef pass and drop the hook in front of Ailuk Village on the South east side of the atoll. We celebrate with an early night after a very tiring two days!
