Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

This is the blog of Maunie of Ardwall. After a six-year adventure sailing from Dartmouth to Australia, we are now back in Britain.

Blue water and light breezes

In the settled conditions of the past week, Port Olry is the most beautiful place.. The water cleared so that when we were anchored in 10m, we could see the bottom as though it was only a couple of metres deep; the white sand beaches were beautiful.

...and out in the open

No wet-suit required!
We had some great times with the Salty Lemons, Kerry & Damian on Sel Citron, spending time in the village watching the Sanma Day sports and celebrations, exploring the island and sharing great meals on both boats.

Free-range organic beef - delicious, we discovered, from the local butcher

Sorry, a bit of a cliche shot but I couldn't resist it!

Sel Citron brightens up any anchorage!

Farewell to the Lemons - we hope our wakes will cross again.
So we are now back in Luganville to get ready for the next adventure - the passage to Australia...
