When last at Musket Cove, a couple of weeks back, we met up with Martin, on Katie M II, who we hadn't seen since our early days in Fiji, back at Viani Bay on the eastern side. He showed me a copy of the Sun newspaper, Fiji's main paper, printed back in May and we were in it - centre page in the Sunday edition! Pictures of both Liz and I, and some of our cruising friends. Unbeknown to us the pictures we're being taken at the sevusevu ceremony and presentations when the ICA rally arrived in Fiji. It's the first time that either of us has had our picture in the press, let alone the centre spread in the Sunday papers, and it's happened on the other side of the world!
Collecting the basket of Fijian fruit and veg presented to every yacht that took part in the rally,
and relaxing with friends.
The other pictures of the rally participants and welcoming committee on the same centre spread.
