Another Super Yacht in Savusavu

Yet again Savusavu sees another Super Yacht visit.

The Catatac based out of Australia,was berthed at the Copra Shed Marina for a few days.

Lots of things happen around Savusavu, one morning, saw a Seaplane being towed from her mooring to the fuel dock to fill up, before carrying on with her flight.

Caught another Seaplane taking off from Cousteau Resort, after dropping off her passengers.

The four young Savusavu sailors are competing in The Pacific Games in Noumea this week, another Savusavu person, Skye Eden (Tim & Lorna's daughter) got bronze in her swimming race last night. Congratulation Skye.

Savusavu Fish

The last few days, have been nice & cool, the sun is out & we have a strong breeze blowing to keep us cool.

The four sailors from the Savusavu Kids sailing club & Geoff, left last night on their way to Suva, then onto Noumea, to represent Fiji, in the south Pacific Games.

We wish them all, the very best of luck

A few new yachts have entered the port over the last week, & a couple of Super Yachts have also called in for supplies.

It is the school holidays in Fiji at the moment, it is also the start of the Hibiscus Festival in Suva, so a few families are, taking this opportunity to travel into Suva for a break.

Saw a rainbow on the way out on a fairly cloudy morning.

Super Yachts Visiting Savusavu

Over the last month or so we have had a few Super Yachts visiting our port, some to get clearance so to continue visiting other parts of Fiji.

Some as a point to be, to pick up their passengers, what ever the reason, it has given us a chance to see how the other half travel.

The latest to grace our shores was the Mayan Queen, this was some vessel! Unfortunately I didn't get a photo, she was a sight to see at night, all lit up beside Nawai Island.

Googled her & saw a photo of her sailing up the Thames.

It is still blowing 20-25knts so haven't been able to get out fishing. Hopefully it will ease up soon.
