|The passage to Fiji consisted of an assortment of exciting sailing, from wave surfing at over 10kts as 4 metre swells pushed us along,to reaching in calm seas at 7kts. Slowing down, speeding up, avoiding thunder storms and sheltering in Minerva Reef for 4 days to avoid the worst of the weather.|
An exciting patch of weather ahead. . .
Calm moonlit nights
Sailing through Minerva Pass
Full moon through the unusual cloud
High winds kicking up the sea over Minerva Reef
Reef party; 27 yachts sat out the storm
A Royal Albatross joins Mawari for a while
Sting ray in the crystal clear waters of Minerva reef
The blue lee cloth prevents us from falling out of bed on passage!
Mor amazing reef. . .
More water heading our way. . .
