Last night in port Denarau
How we got Tonton aboard was a mystery as it’s a high step up from the pontoon. He can’t remember neither can we.When he finally surfaces complain of a headache we are blamed for not saving him from the Bar.
Long walk ashore Quiet Hard Rock Cafe’
As is tradition now, we raise the Brazilian flag, much to my chagrin, as the Welsh flag is demoted to 2nd place by size. But now have a happy crew member, re-united after Antarctica and saved from the cold wet and windy weather of Auckland.
Raising the flag
Grabbing at taxi we head to the supermarket for supplies, ready for our departure as we’re heading back to the islands tomorrow. Tonton can’t get over the prices.

We’ve been left on the pontoon as there still aren’t any moorings free, which is great as far as we’re concerned. Returning we have lunch aboard and carry on working on the computers. We’re now trying to connect the satellite phone into the computer so we can email and take down Grib files when out of range of land based systems.
During the afternoon we are entertained by a bunch of guys practicing their dance routine on one of the tourist boats. Not bad but we wish they would change the record!!
Soft rock Hard rock
Dinner ashore and rugby on the big screen. Just as we are leaving Australian V France starts up. We join our aussies , friends but by half time Lars and Tonton return to the boat while I stay on to the end. Australia loose when the fail to get a penalty kick between the posts and our friends leave dejected!
