Clean and Jerk

03 November 2011 | Vuda Point Marina
3 November 2011

So where were we? Oh yes. Left Denarau to anchor Lautoka where customs is regrettably officious, sea bottom gooey and itch provoking insects particularly aggressive - probably doesn't have anything to do with nearby mangroves or sewage outflow. Have decided to clear out tomorrow, hide a day or two at Robinson Crusoe Island, 35 NM south, then bob off toward New Zealand Sunday or Monday. Resultant sluggardly pace should set us up for next big low coming across Tasman Sea limiting unnecessary ennui on passage.

Vuda (voonda) Point Marina, about 7.5 NM south had space last night and was a lovely experience. Yacht Club bar on the water allowed a cooling breeze, beautiful view and darned decent wine. Spent most of today with laundry, fuel, coffee and catching up with friends from Ivalu and Ogo Pogo. Next stop Saweni Bay just close enough to Lautoka to allow sail in and earliest departure clearance sans previously mentioned inconveniences. Barring pointless requirement for visual of boat from customs office, short bus ride into customs from marina would not have sucked. Planning minimum time and short scope for least muck.
