At 0300 hours watch team 2 struck the forward staysail and the jib in some solid wind hoping to bring us in to port in Vanuatu as we have on other islands. Argo finally anchored in Port Vila’s bay at 0830 local time. Another successful, smooth passage, another beautiful volcanic island anchorage in the vast South Pacific. Cleared, provisioned and shore timed out we watched another episode of our favorite Blue Planet and fell fast asleep with tales of sharks, active volcanoes, dual colonialism and the best kava in the South Pacific. What we’ll discover, we can only imagine.
