Tintin - Yadua

We left Savusavu early in the morning after the bad weather went through. Our plan was to get to Cocoanut Point on the far SW corner of Vanua Levi, so we could get to the Yasawa islands. The skies had been threatening all day, but there was little wind and not much rain. We motored the whole way. In fact, we got slightly further than planned to a large deserted Bay called Bua Bay and had a great evening on board Cabana in the company of Resolute and Zwerver. Yesterday, the small flotilla of boats made its way to Yadua (pronounced Yandua). Once here, we've pretty much decided to not go to the Yasawa Islands, but to stay here for a few days because its so lovely. Its completely desserted, well protected, and with great diving and snorkelling around. There is no internet (apart from Satphone) - you may count that as good or bad.

This morning we headed out to cross the island to do the Sewusewu ceremony with the islanders. However, the path has become overgrown and lost so we after 1/2 through thick bush we turned back.

The rest of the crew has just headed out for some diving and snorkelling. Richard has equipped Pim with a long metal hook for dragging lobsters out of their caves, so we'll see what they back with.
