Makemo - Kite Ops

Well it has been a long time since I have updated the blog..... But don't worry.  I have many excuses!  First of which is that internet is hard to come by when sailing around the Pacific.  Before I knew it, I was behind on posts and it was daunting task to get caught up.  Now it is December of 2017 and Nancy and I have been back on land for several months.  I had planned to make all my updates now that we are in the land of plenty and hot and cold running internet.  Well we hit a snag.  36 hours after returning from the South Pacific our home was burned to the ground in the Tubbs fire in Santa Rosa.  We had 10 minutes notice before evacuating the house at midnight. Blog updates became a low priority item.

We are working through the process of relocating, dealing with insurance and moving forward on a rebuild plan.

I still intend to make updates to the blog and share the adventures we had in the Tuamotus and the Society Islands.  Stay tuned.

In this post I highlight our kiting in Makemo.
This place was Heaven.  We tucked the boat in South East(windward) end of the lagoon.
From this location we found a sand bar to launch from and enjoyed three days of great wind and crystal clear water.
