A sailing catamaran in the Pacific
Gail, Noni and Lizzy wreak havoc
07 June 2012 | Savusavu
We're in a state of nervous excitement. Wives are arriving!! Bearing gifts of muesli aerogard and gin.. picture Gail and lizzie ripping off their winter woollies and maxing out on the day beds. We've already had a day of hilarity with kayaks capsizing, catapulting the chubby (co-guests of Koro Sun) Aussie newlyweds into the depths of the koro sea.
Calling each other Coral we signed up for the snorkelling outing hosted by the resort and I swear we haven't laughed so hard in months. I baggsed my kayak partner first up, elbowing the others out of a chance. He was jo Wilfried Tsonga if ever I saw a look alike. I melted into the kayak and thought it thrilling being propelled fwd by his Fijian muscular magnificence. Then once we'd managed to dislocate ourselves OUT of said kayak, easier said than done, we had another moment of hysterics when Lizzie commented (about the reef) that she was 'waiting to see the colour!' and I thought she'd said 'he's got something around his propeller' which may not sound funny at all but we couldn't stop, even with snorkel and masks to contend with. Ohh did we laugh.
Until Saturday, tomorrow, they are in residence at the nearby Koro Sun resort. Inward Bound wives today include Noni and Tracy together with Ivan and little ones. Resolute is undergoing a spit n polish as the gang move in tomorrow morning for a 4 day sojourn. The plans include a 10 hour day sail, bus and ferry rides, speed boat pick-ups and the divine anchorage of Viani, a rare find of Fijian beauty which we want to show off.
