Arrival at North Minerva Reef

We arrived at North Minerva Reef at 9 this morning.  It's a 2 mile diameter atoll with the reef exposed only at low tide.  There are about a dozen boats here already including several we spoke to on VHF during the passage.  We are anchored on the windward side about a hundred yards from the reef.  The surf crashing on outside of the reef creates a continuous distant roar.  Like the sound of a jet taking off at a nearby airport - but continuous.  Tomorrow we'll explore a bit and try to get some aerial images with the drone.
