We leave the tranquil anchorage in the Bay of Prony and make our way back to the island, Ile Ouen. We head ashore and check out the beautiful beach with its abundance of natural wonders and spot small schools of blue bone fish swimming in the shallow, coral filled waters. Magnus collects and husks a few coconuts, including a young embryo one which we both try for the first time. A little game of beach cricket, because we can, and we then head back to Nutshell to process the coconuts into desiccated coconut and coconut milk. It’s then a short sail back to Noumea to get ready to check out and head back to Australia, but not before we try a beer at the local restaurant. Thanks for watching and following along with our adventures.

We leave Baie Iré, New Caledonia and make our way to Baie du Carénage in Prony Bay, New Caledonia to try and find the cascale falls, prison ruins, old mines and settler’s ruins. We check out a hot spring, which ends up not being so hot! We poke around and finally find some older setter’s ruins which are very interesting. Mavi gets to have a fly and shows us what is around us. Thanks for watching and following along with our adventures.

We finally arrive in Noumea, New Caledonia after many prolonged attempts. We check in and check out the place and then leave the marina and head towards the Baie Iré on the island of Ile Ouen and a lovely quiet anchorage for the night. We try out different ways to build a wind sock for our mobile phones. A little game of boule on the beach and we head back to Nutshell. Thanks for watching and following along with our adventures.

We leave South Minerva Reef and sail towards Norfolk Island where we plan to spend a few days on our way to the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia. It’s a very slow trip and the wind definitely isn’t in our favour. After a few days of bobbing along and going around in circles, and in the wrong direction, we make a decision to abort our Norfolk Island objective and head for New Caledonia instead. It’s about the same distance and Nutshell is letting us know that she wants to go there instead. So, we change our plans and head for New Caledonia. We do as much research as we can about our new destination and look forward to making progress in the right direction! Thanks for watching and following along with our adventures.

We leave Tonga and sail in the direction of North Minerva Reef, a beautiful coral atoll in the South Pacific. We finally arrive at South Minerva Reef after a detour due to weather conditions. Magnus uses the mooring balls from the Tuamotus on our anchor to stop it from getting caught up in the reef and we have a look around the atoll. Mavi gets a workout and flies over this amazing place which is in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Wendy has a snorkel in the crystal clear shallow waters.

We leave Tonga and start the journey to Norfolk Island, via Minerva Reef. Those of you who are less familiar with sailing and sailing terms may find this episode especially interesting. Magnus goes up on deck and has a chat about Nutshell’s sails, her winches and her other nautical stuff and how he goes about shaking out a reef in her main sail. He explains some of the basic sailing terms and systems in simple layman’s terms and shows how Wally works. He talks about trimming sails and explains what the mizzen does.

We start to make preparations for leaving the Kingdom of Tonga to sail to Norfolk Island via the beautiful Minerva Reef. We’ve heard that the crayfish are fabulous on the south reef so we’re going to check it out. We pick up a few last minute food supplies and do the final boat jobs that need to be done for the next passage. Magnus finally manages to fix the problem which is causing Izzy, the engine, to continually fill up with salt water! The autopilot clutch is fixed, yet again. We’re hoping it will make it all the way to Australia. The sails get a few stitches, hatches get resealed and Nutshell gets a big tidy up. We know that Australia is very strict with quarantine when entering, so give Nutshell a good clean and clear out unwanted and not needed items, in preparation for Australian customs. Wendy makes a new courtesy flag for our Norfolk Island arrival. Oh, and we show you how convoluted the process is for finding customs to check out of Tonga!

After our first good night’s sleep and a lull in the blustery weather, we dingy over to Big Mama’s, a lovely yacht club on the motu just off the main island of Nuka’alofa, for our first draft beer in absolutely ages! We head across the bay in Peanut, to the ‘mainland’ and have a poke around the town of Nuka’alofa and manage to find a couple of bakeries and a wonderful market full of Tongan arts and crafts and loads and loads of fresh produce. It’s hard not to notice the number of shipwrecks which surround Nutshell, so we take Peanut out in the bay and get a closer look at them. Thanks for watching and following along with our adventures.

We spend a quiet week in Bora Bora, The weather is a bit ho hum so we do a few boat jobs and have a wonderful sail in the Bora Bora lagoon. We then check out of French Polynesia and start the 14 day sail to the Kingdom of Tonga. It’s a full-on ride, with 30 plus knots of wind and four metre seas. We have a bit of a win in the fishing department and manage to fill the freezer! It’s about time. We arrive in Tonga in good time. It only takes 11 day to do the passage with an average speed of 5.3 knots and most days we were over 8 knots. Time now to deal with the salt water inside the boat and a bit of a sleep catch up.

We take Peanut up a gorgeous little river and then sail to the north island, Tahaa and pop in to a couple of the beautiful bays. The water is deep so there is limited anchoring. Magnus fixes our scupper which has been broken since we bought Nutshell. We snorkel at the ‘Coral Garden’ which is one of the tourist places on Tahaa. We find a lovely little village and have a poke around. Thanks for watching and following along with our adventures.

We head up to the big smoke, Papetee, on the local bus and manage to get the new part which we need to fix our fridge. As usual, and as is common on boats, a little job turns into a much bigger one, and we end up sailing to Papetee and picking up a complete new fridge system for Nutshell. A few hours later and everything is cool on board. We find a local brewhouse and sample a beer and also manage to get our tax free certificate for our fuel.

Magnus cooks up a storm in the galley. We enter through a pretty scary pass with massive waves on either side of us and a huge swell going in! We check out the local Carre Four and enjoy a true blue Aussie bbq burger for dinner.

We have a little look under the water in the lagoon at Makemo Atoll and check out the coral bombies. We leave Makemo and head towards Fakarava, the most popular of the Tuamotu atolls. We take Peanut to the entrance to the lagoon at the pass and drift through the pass with the plentiful fish and black tipped sharks! It’s a beautiful place and Mavi gets a chance to share it with you all.nd Mavi gets a chance to share it with you all. Thanks for watching and for following along with our travel adventures.

We check out the Kon Tiki memorial at Raroia and Magnus does a little fishing from Peanut. We do a little 2 day passage to the nearby atoll of Makemo and check out the lovely village next to the pass. Magnus shows how to gravity fill our gas bottle.

As the weather sets in for a few days, we poke around and check out Raroia, exploring the charming motus and oas which make up the structure of the atoll. There are plenty of critters with large pincers! Mavi gets a fly and we see the beautiful landscape from above. The galley gets another workout and Magnus makes a different type of bread.

We take a short sail around the corner to the little bay nicknamed Daniel’s Bay. Here we catch up with a local family and buy the delicious grapefruit style citrus fruit, pomplemousse picked straight off the trees. We leave Nuka Hiva and start our 5 day passage to the Tuamotus. We arrive at Raroia Atoll and make two attempts to get through the pass. It’s a scary experience! Thanks for watching and for following along with our adventures.

We hike from our bay to the next bay over and explore the oldest archaeological site in the Marquesas. Mavi gets a good workout with breathtaking scenery all around us. Magnus collects a few coconuts and provides food and drink for his family! We catch up with Barry from the YouTube Channel, Adventures of an Old Seadog and hear about his tales of crossing the Pacific Ocean from Panama to the Marquesas. He took 71 days to make the crossing and people were really starting to worry about him. Thanks for watching and for following along with our adventures.

We check out a lovely little village on Ua Huka and then do a short trip to the nearby island of Nuku Hiva. The scenery is spectacular! Magnus MAGuivers new batons for the mainsail which we lost on the Pacific Crossing. We try the local food at a pension on the beach. We arrive at the largest town in the Marquesas to provision and have a look around. It’s Easter so everything is closed. Thanks for watching and for following along with our adventures.
