After over a week of heavy rain and sometimes very blustery winds the weather has finally broken. We are taking this sunny opportunity to escape from the dirty little town if Gizo and start exploring the surrounding islands in the western province of the Solomn Islands. Our first stop is to check out a cyclone hole just 12NM to the west of us at the island of Laipari. From there we’ll head east to check out the Marovo Lagoon, the Diamond Narrows and the town of Noro.
The charts are full of potential anchorages, but not many settlements…perfection in our books. Unfortunately the rains seem to have taken the winds with them so it might slow going.
SPOT is on.
