Greetings. I see you are mentioned in the email from ICA John intending to check into Fiji via Vanu Balavu. So is Ranganui! We are leaving from Auckland and busy checking for the weather window. Our email is ranganuik3831@gmail.com. Could possibly see you at Minrerva. Spener and Janet.

Well done, you obviously had a reasonable run despite the lumpy seas. Enjoy Houhora and especially Whangaroa. Have a beer at Kingfisher Lodge for me, its worth a visit. Cheers Pat and Marilyn
