SY Parmelia, with Alessandro in the mast and Marzia behind the wheel, led the treacherous way within the outer reef of western Vanuabalavu (which stands for Long Island, but which has surprisingly little resemblance with the NY one) from our secluded paradise Sandspit anchorage. After a 2 hour trip we anchored safely in a small bay off Bavatu Harbour in the northwest of Vanuabalavu. Harbour is a rather ample description for a small dock, where the copra from the plantation gets shipped.
