It feels really great to be sitting here in Fiji, even if it is on a Quarantine buoy! We arrived at 3:30 Sunday afternoon with just enough time to navigate into the bay, get in contact with the marina, arrange for customs for tomorrow and grab a quarantine buoy. Putting aside a few boat maintenance issues it was an uneventful sail. That is not to say it was an easy sail, especially for me, as the winds were strong and we did have to outrun a ‘low’ which promised some heavy rain and wind (which we successfully did outrun). Dennis tracked our course to take advantage of the winds as indicated on the weather grib files. I sometimes, just for a very short second, doubted the direction we were going to, as it was not a straight course to Fiji, but here we are safe and sound and in record time! We didn’t catch any fish on this trip and that is because we didn’t drop a line (just too many other things keeping us busy). So we are off for a good night’s sleep, customs tomorrow morning early, a couple of days of R&R and boat maintenance then we are off to explore Fiji. Yahoo!!
