Savusavu Kids Sailing Club

Over the Easter week end the Savusavu Yacht Club Kids Sailing, held a competition sponsored by Savusavu Westpac, they are choosing a team to send to the South Pacific Games

The weather was lovely on Saturday morning, & it was a joy to see the kids getting their boats ready for a day out on the water.

The children of Savusavu are very fortunate to have the club & especially Geoff Taylor who spends his Saturdays on the water with the kids, teaching them how to sail.

This is something Savusavu should be proud of, it doesn't cost the children anything to learn to sail here, & it gives the children something worth while to do with themselves every week end.

A few of the children have gone on to represent Fiji in sailing around the Pacific.

Easter Weekend

The last few days have been cloudy with rain showers, thank goodness Terry decided to anti foul Searov on Monday & Tuesday.

Both days were beautiful, although very hot for the work involved, it was great for drying paint.

This job always takes us 2 days, as we can only do 1 side at a time, we beach her on the beach at high tide, & wait for the tide to recede, paint her, then wait for the tide to come back in so we can re float her.

On Tuesday night while waiting for the high tide, we watched the ferry that takes passengers & cargo to Viti Levu, the main Island of Fiji, load up at the main wharf.

This morning the sky was a lovely red, a bit stormy looking, but great to take photos of.

Happy Easter everyone.

Savusavu Airport.

Such a beautiful day in Savusavu, while enjoying the cool breeze on my porch, I was able to see the Pacific Sun plane arrive in from Nadi.

What a day to be flying into our little town, visitors couldn't have chosen a better day, clear Sky's, lovely blue calm waters, just the day to see all the reefs, as the place flies over them

Geoff Taylor sailed in with his recently refurbish yacht, it looks really good sitting out in front of the Copra Shed Marina, its now so different to the yacht that he purchased last year.

Copra Shed is getting ready for the arrival of the overseas yachts that should start to arrive soon, Pio is busy painting newly made barbecue tables & chairs to have arranged on the lawn in front of the Bar.
