Mar 25 - Maarehaa

Pos: N00deg28.070min/ E073deg33.368min A brisk 15-18 ENE wind came up last night and made sleeping very uncomfortable. We had planned to stay one more day to go exploring, but it was so uncomfortable, with the boat pitching and rolling with the reef directly behind us, that we decided to depart. The anchor was raised at 0700 and we had a nice sail to the east side of the atoll, keeping Kodeymatheelaabadhoo Island (love that name...) to our starboard, and finally dropped the hook in 20' of sand, with protection from the N-E. A lot of the charter dive boats are anchored nearby and the scenery is grand. It's Happy Hour.
