From Fiji, next stop Vanuatu

Cruising around Fiji, we visited the Yasawa islands, the Manta Ray pass (there weren’t any, but good snorkelling), the Blus Lagoon anchorage (where the Film with Brooke Shields was shot) and the beautiful island of Waya when we went ashore at the village and presented the chief (whose name was Tom) with our gift of Kava for the Sevusevu ceremony.  The people are so happy and welcoming and have so little.  After that we made our way south through the reefs to Malolo Lailai island and the Musket Cove Resort to meet up with the World ARC fleet and get ready for the next leg to Vanuatu.  We are saying goodbye to a few boats here who are staying longer and maybe heading down to New Zealand for the cyclone season, but hopefully we will see them again next year as we are planning to spend time in Australia.  Musket Cove is a lovely place to,relax, but we are all a bit busy getting the boats ready though at 450 nm it is not the longest leg.
