Baie de Prony, New Caledonia, South Pacific, September 2021
After many weeks spent in the boat yard for maintenance work of mainly mast and rigging, we finally have mast and sails back in place.
The timing is good as the weather shows up with a couple of days of perfect conditions for a test sail. So good to finally have both sails up!
We have freshly been stocking the boat up with food and water when the blue lagoon welcomes us back to its magical world.
This is just in time before another lockdown is about to happen...
The news has it that the virus has entered New Caledonia´s covid-free bubble. With one night's notice, the entire territory is put under strict lockdown. As this means no islet visits nor lagoon navigation are allowed, we instead head to the sheltered area of Baie de Prony, at the southern tip of New Caledonia.
Surrounded by the luscious vegetation and chanting birds, we are thankful that the timing allowed us to get back to nature, where we now can spend a more relaxed time during the many weeks of isolation.
