Oct. 23 – racing crabs on Kenutu, Vava’u

After a quick trip to town (Neiafu) we motorsailed over to #11 (Tapana) in mist, then rain and strong wind.  Early the next morning we motorsailed over to #30 (Kenutu) in strong wind.  This is one of the most eastern islands and navigating through the coral heads in shallow water was no easy task.  We had to make sure the sun was overhead for clear visibility.  There were about 6 of us squeezed into a small area with some sand over coral.  Most of the islands in Vava’u have either coral or limited sand bottoms with exposed anchorages.  Because of the wind it was impossible to snorkel.  We did manage to have a cruiser get together on the beach, take a hike on Umuna, race hermit crabs, and enjoy a potluck on Slipaway.
