Position           016:51.80S 178:35.71E

Date                1745 Thursday 17 July 2014

Distance run from Suvasuva 57nm – 55.6nm through the water – 8hrs underway

 

Savusavu was a pleasant place to stay but holiday schedules are rather more pressing than cruising schedules.  So after the Skipper had paid a visit to Curly of the waypoints fame and the Mate and crew had done around of the, market and shops we got away for the next leg of our journey through the reefs towards Yadua.

 

 

This was another hard days motoring, absolutely no wind and as we could not make Yadua in daylight we stopped just as dusk was falling in Mbua Bay.  Mbua is the bay upper mid left and the island of Yadua (also spelt Yandua) is to the west (left) of that.
