June 26, 2014 Stuck in Suwarrow

Tried to leave Suwarrow today but our anchor chain is firmly wrapped around a “bommie” (giant coral head) some 80 feet below the boat!  Our friend Steve is a rescue diver, and he is going to brave the sharks with a giant spear gun tomorrowmorning in order to free us.  Thank god he’s here and willing to try, otherwise we’ll have to cut the chain, sail to Pago-Pago, and wait for new chain to arrive from the US.  Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Suwarrow gets a black mark in Privateer’s logbook.
