Warm welcome in Fiji

Press

After a total distance of 1253 nautical miles, or 2320 km we are arriving today in Fiji. We stared in Marsden Cove Marina in New Zealand, stopped briefly in the amazing Minerva Reef and made finally landfall in Vuda Marina at the western coast of Viti Levu, the main island of Fiji. Already at the customs dock we are warmly welcomed by a group of locals singing a welcome song for us.

Maintenance

All vessels need maintenance. This is also true for SuAn. Since exactly two month we are working every day on the vessel. Now we see some light at the end of the tunnel. We are assuming that in one or two weeks we will take SuAn back in the water.

Pacific Loop closed

Loop

Today we cross our track from 2011 and close our Pacific Loop, the circumnavigation of the northern Pacific. During this loop we covered more then 21,000 nautical miles (38,000 km). It was a fascinating challenge and even including the accident in Japan, where SuAn was badly damaged, it was the most enjoyable part of our cruising so far.

Crossing the Pacific again

After careful preparations of SuAn and crew we are starting a new adventure: The crossing of the Pacific. The first leg, which measures a distance of about 2800 nautical miles, will take us from Mexico to the Marquesas in French Polynesia. We assume that this passage takes about three to four weeks.

Back in the Tropics

Last night we crossed the Tropic of Cancer, the imaginary line at the latitude of 23°26′13.1″. This is the most northerly circle of latitude on Earth at which the Sun can be directly overhead. Now we are back in the Tropics. This also ends our three years excursion in to the colder climates of the North-Pacific.
