Éowyn is still moored
in Port Vila, Vanuatu in position 17:44.700S 168:18.689E
Tonight there was a great meal
at the Waterfront restaurant with another traditional dance and a rather less
traditional but rather good, blues band.
We were again delighted with
the racing result for the last leg. We managed second place, rather better than
expected as a couple of yachts motored much more than us.
The winner was Ciao, a Sweden
Yachts 45. It is unbelievably fast in all conditions and impressed us in almost
no wind when we were motoring. Srecko from Slovenia sails it really well and
quite aggressively and must be the easy favourite to win World ARC
Tomorrow we clear Customs and
finalise our passage plan for the 8 day sail to Mackay. Australia willo be a
massive milestone for us. Although Mackay is not quite half way, it does feel
like it and to arrive safely will be our main aim.
