This week we leave DT in the marina at the Pearl Harbour Resort on Fiji’s Coral Coast and fly back to New Zealand . Jo has been managing a shoulder injury and having failed to find anyone to put it right in Fiji, we decide our only option is to head back to Auckland to get it treated. While there , we visit family, shop for food and boat spares and fit in a sneaky visit to the NZ Boat Show.
After a crazy busy week, we head back to Fiji and wait for a decent weather window to travel across the bottom of Viti Levu and up the eastern coast. We spend our time restocking the larder and making good use of the marina facilities. We crack through some boat jobs and give DT a damn good clean.
Once our weather window comes up we head out and have a fabulous downwind sail 72nm to Momi Bay on the east coast.
We are welcomed with a dolphin escort and drop the hook in beautiful Momi bay just in time for sundowners.
