We played lots of cards in the evenings. Another NZ boat 'Awakening' shared some photos of Tintin under sail during our journey back to Noumea. Lynne and I visited the Tjibaou Cultural Centre and marvelled at the stunning architecture reflecting the curves of the tall pine trees in the wind.
Lynne, Annie and Emma have now headed back home…. leaving me to have Tintin hauled out at Nouville Plaisance this coming week. Tintin's hull is now very badly fouled and needs to be cleaned in order to meet New Zealand's biosecurity regulations for arriving vessels - hopefully she will then also sail faster.
