Beveridge Reef

24 August 2015 | Beveridge Reef
We decided to stop off at Beveridge Reef on our way to Niue. We left around 10am for the 2 day trip. We arrived next morning in company with "Perry" another cat. As there is no land to enter the lagoon, it has to be done by instruments. The charts in theses parts are out by about 3miles, so we all had acquired co-ordinaries for the entrance and had to forget about the plotter showing us going across the reef, and trust the information. Amazing place when it is rough and windy outside, the inside like a mill pond even tho' the wind was still blowing. Another wait for a weather opportunity to leave for Niue. There were 8yachts in the Lagoon and a couple left the day before us, but another three arrived. A wrecked fishing boat made for great snorkelling and with crystal clear water of amazing colours, what more could you want. Breaking reef all around a big calm anchorage in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
