Departed Kaunakakai 0715 bound for Lono Harbor 13.5 miles up the Molokai coast. Arrived at 1000, anchor down 1015. Uneventful and enjoyable trip. Conditions light. Wind fair, 5-10 kts, seas 3 ft. Motor sailed most of the trip. The Australian flag S/V Shambala is sharing the anchorage with us. Originally met the family of four at Hilo and saw them again at Kaunakakai. Found Lono Harbor very inviting for swimming, so we did just that – calm, warm, clear. Checked SD’s underbody for marine growth in preparation for what could be an adventurous channel crossing tomorrow. Next stop – Honolulu.
