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
