This morning October 4, 2016 at 0641 local, Carina entered the lagoon at Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia after making the passage from the Ninigo Islands. Dolphins greeted us and made us feel welcome. We had been idling offshore drifting overnight, getting underway at 3 am local time headed for the pass. The trip was 1295 nm and each mile was earned. Almost every day we had to learn a few new tricks to infuse drive into the Carina sailing machine. We had few breaks but even fewer breakdowns, thankfully. Our FSM check-in was efficient and friendly. We're going to sleep well tonight. We are looking forward to going ashore and catching up with our old friends after a three year absence.
Thank you to all who followed us, helped us, and kept us cheerful.
Your friends of SV Carina,
Philip, Leslie and the spirit of the fat cat, Jake
