Dere Bay Koro Island

The weather seemed a little more settled so we accepted a charter to take workers to Koro for a job.

All night the wind blew & didn't ease until about 3.30am, so we knew it was going to be a rough trip.

When we got to the boat about 5.30 everything looked calm & the sun was starting to rise so we thought maybe it won't be that bad.

I think we were just kidding ourselves, just as we approached the Savusavu entrance we could see how rough it was, 10 mins out ,Terry had to pull back & travel at about 10knots.

We hit some pretty big swells, & poor Searov groaned as she came off them.

Traveling at this speed slowed us down & added another 20 or so mins to the trip, but was a better ride.

Once at Dere Bay, the workers were off to do their job & Terry set about doing his boat & engine checks, then we went up to the lovely bure at the top of the walkway & relaxed until the workers came back.

The trip back was a different story, it took us under 2 hrs, some times it felt as if we were nearly flying!
