Sailed west today and found Heafeua island . Not where we planned to be but seemed well charted and we passed the village to enter the reef on the west side. Nicely protected with views across the sea to the huge cone of Kao volcano which rises as a perfect cone from the sea 30miles away .No other boats here  and lovely and calm anchored in 7 metres . There is even a beacon in the entrance to mark the shallow patch to be avoided .
