International Date Line

We sailed to Apia Western Samoa and Papo Pago American Samoa on the same day even though there was an overnight sailing between the two islands.  This is because Western Samoa wanted to be in same time zone as Australia and American Samoa wanted to be in the same time zone as Hawaii.  In other words, we crossed the International Date Line twice.
