Really, really leaving for Rotuma today.

October 30, 2013

Sailing ~265nm from Vanua Levu Fiji to Rotuma Fiji

We really tried to leave yesterday.  On our way toward the reef pass the wind shifted from NE to SE and dark storm clouds rolled off Vanua Levu pummelling us with rain.  We ran for safe anchorage as the storm raged for several hours with flashing lightening and rumbling thunder.  Our cat Shell totally freaked out with the thunder.

Mostly clear skies today and a nice forecast of east 15 for the next few days for our sail to Rotuma.

This is the end of the internet connection for the next few months.  Just Sailmail via SSB (ham) radio. However, we can still collect email from ALL of our email accounts, but we usually only check one a day.

That's it for now.
