As we approach SavuSavu we leave behind our 2nd longest crossing since San Diego.
1.300 nautical miles since we left New Zealand. It has been a good and safe passage, sometimes lighter winds than we wish but that is always preferable to gale force winds.
Lumbaz has behaved really well and the crew has enjoyed some ocean going time again. Life on sea is very different than when you are close to land and it has its own special pace, it’s own routines which we truly enjoy.
A new country ahead of us, a new language and for sure some new friends, while we long for the ones left behind.
Today is Monday here and if the wind does not die completely we should be able to arrive in SavuSavu, which lies 33 miles ahead of us in about 8 hours, in time for the official clearance.
All good on board.
