Leaving Christmas Island, June 28, 2013

Today the Kwai finished loading cargo and passengers.

This is the safety demonstration.

The Kwai is a sailing ship. Depending on the wind, it may go under sail, or under motor.

Another freighter serving these islands is the Moa Moa. Unlike the Kwai, it only serves Kiribati, and goes all the way to the capital, Tarawa, in the Gilberts archipelago. The Moa Moa finished loading and left before the Kwai.

In the afternoon, after everyone was ready, the Kwai left, course 310 magnetic to Fanning island.

Sailing into the sunset.
