Arrived in Samoa

We arrived in the Western Samoa in the port of Apia on the island of Upolu after a nice passage of 1179 nautical miles (2193Km) that took us 9 days and 1 hour from Bora Bora in French Polynesia. The funny thing is the 1 hour in question was cancelled by the fact that Samoa is one hour behind Bora Bora and therefore we arrived at the same hour we left 10:20am. Our original plan was to stop in the middle at the atoll of Suvarov, which is part of the Cook Islands, but the wind direction and the fact we were making very good progress made us change our plans and we simply went straight to Samoa.
