Over the next two days we had 4 new crew join, our niece Jess and her boyfriend Connor first. Then a couple of days later Lois’s sister (Jess’s Mum) and her husband Ken.
With everyone on board we sailed from Port Denarau to go for a cruise round some islands.
Approaching Wilkes Passage looking to port
First we went out through Wilkes Passage into the open sea and did some trolling but without luck.
Ken in charge of fishing
We worked north along the Malolo Barrier Reef:
Jess & Connor not spotting any fish for her Dad
We then came back inside the reef heading for an anchorage.
