Saturday 19th January – The Cook Islands Weren’t Swell
We did wake to find clear skies and less strong winds, but there was a large swell caused by a tropical storm off the coast of New Zealand. With the swell reaching up to three metres, the ship was lurching around a fair bit, which meant that the little tender boats would have been tossed around dangerously.
So, the captain made the sensible (but disappointing) decision to cancel the call here – which meant that all we had was a tantalising glimpse of this beautiful tropical island from the sea.
We will be back.
