Tough Bash to Suva – Anchored off the Royal Suva Yacht Club

We arrived in busy Suva harbor yesterday after a tough bash to windward. We covered the 60nm from Ovalau Island to Suva in daylight but it took everything Ellie had to push into the 20+ knots and steep confused seas and strong opposing current. We had decent light entering the pass and we anchored in 7 feet of brown water off a very busy commercial port. Quite a shock to the system when compared to pristine almost uninhabited Bua Bay. We have a long list of errands to run while here so we are up early to head into town. Will write later. Here is a pic of Ellie bashing around Viti Levu and of the Mermaid upon arrival in Suva. Cheers
