Run: 77.6nm (140.5km)
17 52.978S 177 11.850E
Weather: Feathery stratus cloudcover with 7 knots of SE

Anchored just south of the heart-shaped island of Tavarua, within dinghy distance of the renown surf spots of Cloudbreak, Restaurants and Tavy Rights. Last evening, we had the pleasure of a striking orangey pink sunset and in the foreground of our visual, the silhouette of the spectator stands. In spite of the swell abeam, not a bad anchorage at all....added benefit is hearing the surf day and night....

Weather: 7 knots of SE. Bit of chop in the bay. Overhead mostly clear.

Time for an update because we've been in Fiji awhile.


Hey guys! Had no idea you were in Fiji. We're in N. Astrolabe heading to Astrolabe or Kadavu in the morning. Where are you headed? Would love to see you!

Staying protected from the gusting westerlies in this very civilized bay.


Cool anchorage spot. Will definitely keep in mind next time we get a westerly when there. When are you coming to Fiji?

Weather: 2 knots of NE breeze, glassy seas with light cloud cover

Time for an update!


We've been hanging around Noumea and Ilot Maitre since arriving in New Cal but with no wind forecasted for kiting, we're motoring around exploring anchorages we've not previously visited. Ilot Charron is surrounded by healthy coral, which is surprising given the lack of water clarity. Simply a lovely anchorage.

Avg: 4.4knts
24hr: 106.8nm
22 20.012S 166 24.332E
Weather: Overcast with 14 knots of ESE breeze

Even on this leeward side of Ilot Maitre, we have a bit of swell. Surprisingly, only 3 boats are here even though it's a 3 day holiday weekend. Must be because rain is forecasted but wind too, so the kites will be out....

Run: 337.1nm (610.2km)
27 57.00S 153 25.36E
Weather: Light NW, clear skies, flat seas inside Gold Coast waterway

Enjoyed Coffs Harbour the first of April and have enjoyed Southport since mid April. Starting to get cold here in Australia's early winter so it's time to head to the warmer clime of New Cal in a few days.


We’ll follow your progress from anchorage to anchorage from our Anchorage. Safe sailing, and happy kiting. xx

Weather: Very light SW breeze, glassy seas, sun with light clouds

Enjoying uninhabited Fame Cove with four other boats. We watched a solo pelican fishing off the eastern shore last night while dolphins swam around our perimeter. This morning, kookaburras laughed us awake, crows and magpies joined in and we tuned into a unique orchestra of birdsong. Lovely, lovely...


Pelicans - how special, I am a little envious. Taken me ages to check in again sorry. Hope all is well with you guys.
