Arrived in Bundaberg yesterday morning. Passage in little less than 5 days. Great 18-23 knts winds from SE first 2.5 days, then dead calm. Had to motor about half the time. Enjoying Bundaberg, Downunder rally company, and looking forward to upcoming events. Clearance and quarantine super easy & friendly. Nothing unexpected.

We're back on YIT after a great few months in Vanuatu. Now in New Caledonia, getting ready to head to Australia. Landfall will be at Bundaberg as we are going along with the Down Under Rally with John Hembrow and some other 40 boats.

Arrived anatom monday night 2am, (5.5 days from opua) w/o confirmation that we could clear in. Went ashore in the morning to meet super friendly officials - immigration, bio, customs, even tho no cruise ship in sight. Yesterday, attended opening & celebration of Anatom as new port of entry. Will become effective very soon. Need to recruit staff locally. Passage was uneventful and fast with a lot of motoring due to poor winds and large swell that kept taking the wind out of the sails. A big thank you to david & patricia who guided us on weather and kept us company throughout the passage. Bio in vanuatu seems limited to promise to keep fruits vegetables & meat on your boat. Enjoying a beautiful anchorage and friendly villagers. Oh, by the way, there are grapefruits here, the same as those in the Marqueses. Delishhhh.
