At anchor: Lamen Bay, Epi, Vanuatu

May 21st, 2011 · 1 Comment

We have accelerated trade winds at the moment as there is a large high to the the south. The passage here from Mele just north of Port Villa was in 30-35 knots of wind just aft of the beam, so a quick passage. An awkward sea was running rather like the sea between the islands in the Caribbean. This bay is well sheltered though with just the occasional gust coming across the anchorage.

Swimming with Dougons is the potential highlight here so will be ashore soon to check it out. Position: 16°35’S 168°09’E [-16.596,168.163]
