Saw incredible 3 day ancient festival on Ambrym island in Vanuatu. 13 boats here at Nopul village. Have had 3 earthquakes, one very scary when we were all scrambling to get out of a rickety building on a cliff. Hike up to a volcano rim tomorrow. Been very rainy for several days. Clear today and gusty. Having a great time.


Lovely to read your report and to know you’re back in beautiful Vanuatu. xx PG

Still in Port Vila, Vanuatu, but took a small plane to Pentecost Island where we saw the incredible land diving and a fantastic waterfall. Fun hikes and swims. Also drank Kava, yuk!

Still anchored in Port Resolution in Tanna. Visited the volcano and it was absolutely incredible. Getting a lot of ash on the boat, wishing for rain now. Locals in the small village are very friendly. Three other boats here we know. Will have a potluck on the beach today.


Looks like a amazing place and the volcano has been erupting since 1774! WOW! Miss you and hope you are having the time of your life.Lots of love always, Lynn

S/V PEREGRINE is successfully in Vanuatu after 6 days at sea. We ran into 12 hours of 4 meter seas and 40 knot winds, and for the rest of the trip we had fair seas. We made the crossing in 6 days two days earlier than expected because the weather and seas were in our favor. Our satellite connection was out for a few days, of course when we needed it the most so this is why our update on YIT is so far behind the dates that we actually did come in. We arrived on Sunday at 3:00pm and customs checked us in right away because they were here for a cruise ship coming in on Monday. Now it is raining for a few days before we go to Tanna and see the live and active volcano.

S/V PEREGRINE Not much wind, motor sailing, calm seas,and we are able to be above the front coming in. It will be just below us, so we are staying focused to make sure we are above and out of harms way. We will be in port by June 3, 2 days earlier than expected. All is well on board. Bill had a great Bday, I made him a TBone steak and he loved it.


Good speed - great to hear you are beating the weather. Thinking of you... stag safe! Xx

S/V PEREGRINE begins the 9 day sail to Vanuatu on Monday at 5:00 pm New Zealand time.

we're traveling at 6.5 knots on a 332 heading. We have traveled roughly 135 Nautical miles of our 950 nautical mile trip.

The weather conditions are clear, rolling seas with 1/2 to 1 SE meter seas. Happy the seas are not so big, yet the rolling can be annoying.

Today is Bill's Birthday. Happy Birthday to Bill. He is 68 years old today. All else is grand on board hoping to make a nice T bone steak dinner for the birthday boy...seas permitting...


Nice departure! Hope everything goes well! Happy Birthday captain Bill!! Update as you can! Xxoo
