At last we have sent the vang off to Auckland for repairs. No one here who can do it unfortunately. It will be at least a week before we see it again – excellent in a way as it releases us from the evil smelling Port Moselle. At last we are at anchor off a tiny islette with some good diving and snorkelling. Just the odd sea snake for company.
As the weather is calm and settled at the moment we have the opportunity of exploring all kinds of different anchorages.
