Kharisma is well on her way home - a good passage so far - Making good progress, motor sailing in mild conditions. All well on board
From Blue Lagoon we meandered down the yasawas, stopping for several more swims with the mantarays, octopus resort, the sandspit at Waya, beautiful Navandra island, mana island, likuliku resort and then to musket to say goodbye to the fleet. Today we went out to the famous cloud break and now we are heading to Sawene bay so I can go to the dentist on lautoka tomorrow!
At beautiful Mana island
25 hours to do 170 miles- great trip, but roughed up in the last few hours, but nicely tucked up here at Namath island. Off to do sevusevu tomorrow then we can go swim with the mantarays position: 18 47.241s 178 29.744e

Bula! Arrived in Fiji and cleared in at Bay of Islands on Vanua Baluva. We had big swells 3-4m and 30 knots wind very very rolly seas - but all good, especially after something to eat and a good nights sleep
Had a vigorous and boisterous sail up from the Ha'apais to Vava'u, 30 kts and swells coming up behind us kissing ass! All good though after a good nights sleep and hamburger and chips and a beer! We will head out to the coral gardens tomorrow for a snorkel. So nice being here and revisiting the old favourites
