Location: Suva, Fiji

Soon after breakfast this morning we raised anchor and left Namuka island to head back to Suva for the day. This gave the crew a few more hours in town before we head out for our 700 nm passage to Vanuatu. Some made a visit to the clinic, others visited the Suva handicraft market, the largest of its kind in the South Pacific, while others went running to get some exercise before the passage. Many chose to have lunch on shore to enjoy the excellent Thai and Indian food that can be found in Suva. Back on board tonight we are having an oceanography quiz and CPR class.
