Just returned to Denarau after more great sailing around here including Beqa on north to the northern tip of Yasawa Island. Staying here for the summer and basing out of Denarau/Musket Cove. Celebrating an American Thanksgiving with friends in Australia (visa run) and then back to Mango Moon to host more family for Christmas. Hugs to all of you back in NZ or making your way down right now.

Beautiful day, calm wind and seas. Heading back to Denarau after a magnificent time with family in Savusavu, Rabi and Taveuni. No luck fishing but haven't given up yet-lines are out. More guests arriving soon so we will stay around Viti Levu et al for a month or so.

Tough 24 hrs with repairs pending. Very high winds and rough seas caused damage to steering linkage arm and both autopilot rams. One autopilot repaired for now. We will try to jury rig the steering linkage today.
Later on GHRadio net. The weather will improve tomorrow so maybe a good idea to take a rest day. 27 42S and 174 20E at this time with 13W wind,
