We have been in Va V'au for 10 days now and are adjusting to cruising life without so much movement. We are sleeping in the berth instead of on cockpit cushions on the floor and eating yummy fruit.

We have jury rigged the SSB aerial after it broke on passage and it seems to be working well. We are testing it regularly with Golf Harbour radio and have a new one on warrantee on standby to come if we think we need it for the trip home in October.

Family and friends to visit over the next month so we are excited to share all we are seeing and experiencing.
