In Feb 1995 we repainted all blue stripes in Puerto la Cruz , Venezuela and made Cantana3 shiny and beautiful again. Started sailing west again to ABC islands, San Blas islands and arrived Panama in April. After the canal further to Galapagos and then the longest but easiest trip 3100 miles in 21 days to Hiva Oa in French Polynesia. Enjoyed many islands as Ahe, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Moorea before Tonga and Fiji. Came to Coffs Harbour in Australia in Nov and sailed further south to Sydney. Stayed there 4 lovely months.
