Peerless Passage Positively Presumed

04 November 2011 | Robinson Crusoe Island
04 November 2011

Devilishly clever plan to avoid pitfalls of Lautoka by anchoring 3.5 NM away in Saweni Bay came a cropper as mud and mosquitos were joined by permeating aroma of burning garbage manifesting after wind shift at dusk. 0815 arrival at customs this morning due feckless alarm clock (which was subsequently a deserving recipient of several muttered expletives) put us last in que delaying departure for Robinson Crusoe Island until after 1000. Onshore breeze filled in early before eventually dying for delightful sail until afternoon enabling daylight arrival.

Previous two weeks of sailing have been beautiful, but placid in light winds and calm seas - sailing for non-sailors. A tad too tranquil frankly, Jan & I being sailors and all. For foreseeable future this appears also to be forecast condition of great swatches of ocean between here and New Zealand. Almost certainly, however, by departure in two days the environment will have adapted to our wishes for a perfect 1150 NM broad reach passage to Port Opua.
