Happy Days! Cruising is on! We motored the 30mins over to Ueoleva this morning to join the rally crowd. The anchorage is the best yet, with good holding on a sandy bottom and plenty of Island between us and the breeze.
After we got here this morning we joined the mob and went for a drift snorkel in the reef passage - a really good opportunity to dive crystal clear water over coral on a 100m drop off. The girls had a ball.
This afternoon we have had a good session of school before we head across to the beach bar for $5 Pa'anga beers and rum punch, a pot luck BBQ and volleyball.
Tomorrow we will sail the 85nm to Vava'U - the weather is looking Ok for the trip so far....
