It looks like everyone sailing north has been put on the back foot making daily weather checks for that prefect weather window. Good business for the busy 'Marina cafe'.
We were planning to leave on Saturday but the weather has changed again with cyclone Ella moving over Fiji and a low developing off the coast of Australia. We will make our weather judgement closer to the time.
For now we can only wait and get on to those small boating jobs lurking around the yacht.
