Oct. 21 – Port Havannah – day four/five

Mist and overcast skies greeted us at 5:30am in Revolieu Bay.  It took us one long tack in bumpy and lumpy seas and waves breaking over the deck and into the cockpit to make it back to Port Havannah.  The wind kicked up to 27kt and we had a second reef in the main and the small jib was out.  Ten hours later we dropped the anchor in calm water, no rain and big blue skies.

The next morning (day five) we watched turtles swim by and lost count the number of jellyfish in the water.  It was a four hour sail back into Port Vila.  Blue skies, warm and clear, wind was in the 20s inside the channel of Port Havannah.  Once we got out of the channel into open water the wind was 25kt and Efate was shrouded in mist.

We grabbed a mooring and headed to the showers.
