In the front and the wind will be east quad on the nose for a few days so Jack will think of going into isle of Pines in the southern lagoon of new Caledonia. he is just south of there. This would be a good idea as he would not make much progress towards Fiji with the look of the wx.

May the peace of God be with you. May the creator of the wind sail with you! Enjoy your life with a thankful heart, Jack!

A short stopover in New Caledonia sounds like a good plan Jack. Enjoy!

He will get ssw10 tomorow so that will help sail. We did a survey of boats going to Fiji and very few got an acknowledgement! One said they got one eventually. One said they got a reply and were wished a good passage! Most got nothing. Jack has got the copy of the email that said they have the form so no problems. It seems you just arrive!

Radio a bit of a problem. GHRadio will contact Fiji concerning his pre arrival. He thinks maybe the wrong email address was used.

Jack, looks like you may have traveled down part of the Barrier Reef. I have a pint of Guinness waiting for you here in NSW at the Boorowa Hotel! Travel well with tail winds!

Will contact Fiji via general info this afternoon to follow up on the approval

Contacted Fiji, problem with email supplied. Your request for approval is being processed. Any further communication with Fiji contact general info. Fiji stated that you will be fine to enter with no issues.

about 200nm out from Gold Coast. Hoping to go direct to Fiji. Awaiting the arrival of his pre arrival notification from the slow response Fiji folk! GHRadio will hopefully hear from Jack's daughter but otherwise patricia will contact Fiji again.

Hi Jack, my prayer and blessings is with you. May God' peace is with you on the ocean and in your heart.
