After a week in Savu Savu with strong winds and some heavy rain we moved to Couteau  yesterday and sailed this morning . Sailed out through the pass but then no wind and flat calm so motor on a smooth shiny sea arriving here at 1600 hrs . Makrogai was badly hit by cyclone Winston and the village we visited    2 years ago destroyed . The tops are off most of the palms and the buildings have gone . There are 8 yachts in the bay all part of the Sea Mercy effort . WE will see if we can help in the morning , otherwise sail on to Ovalau .
