Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

This is the blog of Maunie of Ardwall charting our adventures as we sail around the world. The boat is now on the east coast of Australia while we spend a summer back in Britain.

Interim update

Just a quick update to say that our destination is in sight. We're in the Ha'apai group of islands (lots of tiny palm-tree islets amongst the bigger ones) and have about 20 miles to sail to Pangai (the Clearance Port) on Lefuka Island. We had a brilliant sail last night and today is warm,  sunny and breezy – perfect.
 
It'll be a busy day with some intricate pilotage between the islands, followed by anchoring and then the process of clearing in with the authorities so a full blog update probably won't be posted till this evening.
 
A tired but happy crew on Maunie
