Back to the Tradewinds














After a winter with little or no sailing but a lot of sawing and sanding, it's time to return to Fiji for two weeks.  The Tamanu is disassembled and stored under a house there.  Hopefully the parts are all still there and in good condition.















This what our cruising ground looks like.  Lots of islands and coral reefs to sail around and chase some fish.

Congratulations Gary! Looking forward to hearing about a third season of Fiji adventures in the centre-line yellow toothed Tamanu!

I remember a post from last year that you had deployed a spritsail on your Wa'apa. Would you share the dimensions of the sail you made, as a comment here? Thank you!
