On a Yachting World mooring at Port Vila, waiting for good weather to go across to Australia. There are several boats here wanting to do the same thing. If possible, David and Patricia, if you have time, could you please include some info on your GHR sked re the weather for this passage (Port Vila to Bundaberg, passing through the New Cal Grand Passage, or going over the top of New Cal). Thanks so much for the fantastic GHR service you provide - it's very much appreciated.
