In the Great Astrolabe Reef

We have sailed south to the Astrolabe Reef (see http://www.yit.co.nz/yacht/maunieofardwall for details) – a cracking 70 mile sail that made the 2.00am departure worth while. The reef is huge, with several small islands and a couple of big ones, Ono and Kadavu, to the south.
 
We've had some great entertainment, both at Leleuvia on the day before departure, and at the island of Dravuni yesterday but we'll have to wait till we get to some internet access to tell you about it all as the photos are needed to illustrate the stories. In the meantime we hare anchored off the tiny, uninhabited island of Namara where the water is crystal clear and the coral beautiful and teeming with fish so we'll be snorkelling again today before moving south to Ono.
