Weather: Nice. Clear sky and moon.
A slow and comfortable start towards Vanuatu. Had to go south of Viti Levu, so most of the first day was 30/40 degrees on the southeast wind. Moderate winds made it quite nice for a change. No wind during the night, so we were motorsailing passed Savu and out to sea on the west coast of Fiji. Now wind is picking up and we are tight reaching straight towards our goal. Port Resulution on the Island Tanna.
Sea state: 0,5 – 1 m.
Fishing: Caught and released a Baracuda.
All is well.
