Vuda Point Marina, Fiji as a cyclone hole?

Fiji's Vuda Point Marina is considered by many as the one of the better cyclone holes in the South Pacific.  Category 4 cyclone Evan put it to the test with a direct hit.

A number of sailors rode out the storm aboard their vessels in Vuda Point Marina.  Here are links to their stories, photos and videos.
