Headed to Suva, Fiji.
Suva, Fiji will be the first port of call. We have about 16 hours to go so we should arrive in Suva harbor tomorrow afternoon. The clearance process requires meeting with lots of officials both on the boat and shore side and I'll be surprised if we can complete the process in one afternoon alone so it may stretch in to Friday. We sighted our first bit of land in 1000+nm and amazingly could see the top of the island of Kadavu even at 45nm out as the summit is 813m (2642')which lies to the south of Fiji's largest island of Viti Levu.
