Great sailing today! All sails up, and Gudrun is zooming along just nicely now, fast and steady at 120degrees apparent wind. Suva is just up north, and there should be no problem with being at the Navula passage on the south-eastern corner of Viti Levu tomorrow early morning. From there I have to go 22nm north-east to Lautoka to clear in before going back south a 6nm to Vuda Point, where the marina is. Hope clearing in doesn't take too long and I can get there before evening.

Plan for the rest of the day is mostly just sailing and a little cleaning, getting ready for the inspection by the authorities. And cooking, hmm, I wonder what to have for lunch today. Yesterday I made Burritos, very tasty. Now I have one onion, one carrot, a little bit of cabbage, some potatoes and some apples left. Sounds like stew, but I don't feel like it. What I would really like right now is a plate of kebab with rice, salad, and sauce!

125nm to go
