We've had overall mediocre sailing conditions here in Fiji but yesterday coming back to Viti Levu we had 15-20 kts of wind, great sailing.
Happy 45th Birthday Martin! Tonight we'll celebrate with a well travelled box of Ghiradelli chocolate cake mix(it has made the same trip as we have, from NC) and dinner at the Boatshed restaurant. We're making final preparations to leave Fiji on Saturday and make the passage down to New Zealand, about a 1,000 mile trip. We'll wait out the cyclone season there until May 2016. Pau Hana will get some rest and a tune-up after the big trip.
