Monday, October 29, 2007 - Back to the Marina
29 October 2007 | Vuda Point Marina, Fiji
Sand Dollar departed Navandra Island at 8:30 AM and had a very pleasant 26 mile sail to Vuda Point Marina where I reconnected with friends I had not seen in months. After cocktails at the yacht club we went to a neighboring restaurant and stuffed ourselves with two-for- the-price-of-one-pizza.
My crew, Laure, has found a boat to Australia so she will be leaving me in a day or two. In the mean time, I have found new crew who is flying in from NZ on Wednesday. He is very keen to do the passage south and, although I have not met him yet, comes highly recommended by mutual friends. The next several days will be spent preparing the boat and looking for a weather window.
All else is well onboard.
