Sailing Around The World

Off To Fiji

After going round and round with Customs and Immigration documents we are underway, Ben, Jessica, Jade, and myself. We left the Vava’u Pass at 13:30 today 10-14-13 and estimate that we should arrive in Savusavu, Fiji by Thursday if the wind stays our of the southeast. Currently we are making 6.5 to 8.5 knots of speed with wind speeds of 18 to 24 knots with clear skies! I am happy to be underway again and I am looking for to a new country and its challenges! I hear the shark diving is very good in south Fiji so I hope to dive with some Tigers and Bulls. Anyway I will keep you all updated as we sail our way to Fiji through the coral chain of reefs and unmarked objects that scatter the ocean crossing from Tonga to Fiji. We already passed a volcano on our way out today.

Current Position: 05:25utc, 18deg 32.0min South, 174deg 41.0min West, COG 286deg, SOG 6-8.5knots, Wind Speed 20knots, Wave height 1-2meters, clear skies.

Hope they have Rum in Fiji,

Thanks

Jacques

        Good one. How long will you be in Fiji? We get to Rakiraki Sunday 27th next and will be there 7 weeks if you’re gonna be nearby?
