We went to Pitcairn but were not able to anchor
. My wife went ashore - the surf boat was driven by Brenda Christian, who is Fletcher's direct descendant. June loved the island and the people.
The strange thing about the conditions there was that there was virtually no wind
, certainly less than 5 knots, but there were three separate sets of swells one from the NE, one from the NW and one from the south. To anchor
you need to get quite close to shore since the water is very deep. The shore is basically all cliffs so the waves bounced and added to the confused sea.
Last thought is that the island is quite beautiful.
