Hello from Ile Neba northern tip of New Caledonia. We have had some wonderful sailing the last few days along the beautiful coast of New Cal. We have rounded the tip and will slowly make our way back to Noumea by the end of this month. Neba looks stunning but it's too windy today to go ashore, maybe tomorrow. All is well aboard. Thanks for the emails hope to respond when we get back to some wifi as we continue to need our precious data for weather. SV Lucy
