After five weeks at sea, our ship delivery crew was happy to spot land again. On the 17th of October the tug Chorlo arrived at Papeete port, Tahiti for a stopover. Tahiti is the highest and largest island at French Polynesia. It is located at a distance of 2,734 miles south of Hawaii, 4,908 miles away from Chile and 3,541 miles away from Australia.
