At anchor: Port Vila, Efate, Vanuatu

May 16th, 2011 · No Comments

Visually it was like coming into Oban on a wet day when we entered the Port Vila bay yesterday. Temperatures a bit different with both Sea and air at 28°C. The Convective belt of clouds called the South Pacific Convergence zone has been close for the last few days giving overcast skies and rain. I’m sure your sympathies are with us! Its due to move away soon.

Yasur volcano on Tanna was awesome. We saw it on a quiet day still a dramatic firework display after dark with explosions and other worldly noises. The occasional wiff of sulphorous gas added to the atmosphere! Position: 17°44’S 168°19’E [-17.738,168.31]
