After 3 days of preparation for the ocean (food,diesel,cleaning,yachtservice etc)we cleared out of Fiji in Lautoka.We did have some problems due to all crewchanges that has taken place onboard Tarita since our arrival last year.It´s worth mentioning for other cruisers that clearing on/off crew in Muscet Cove is not accepted by customs/immigration in Lautoka(at least not with our immigration officer).We passed through Maololo passage at 12.00 "Anatom" the southernmost island in the Vanuatugroup.With the Pointers and  the Southern cross to port,Venus ahead,and March behind the nightsky is magic.We have 16-18Kts out of the southeast and with full sails we keep a speed of around 7 kts.See you in 2 days.Goodnight!
