Port Vila Seawall, Yachting World, Vanuatu
Chimere arrived at Port Vila at 8:30AM this morning. Customs, Quarantine and Immigration formalities were completed and the crew let loose to explore Port Vila.
Everyone agreed it was a good voyage and we are pleased we could do our part to help the 2017 Medical Sailing Ministries mission to the poor and needy of Vanuatu. Yes the first 3 days were a bit tough but the last 4 days of very pleasant sailing well and truly made up for that.
In summary we sailed 1470NM in 9 days and 17 hours with an average speed of 6.3 knots. Our best days run was 171NM and we estimate 551 lites of diesel were sipped by our ever loyal hard working Perkins.
Now it’s over to the next crew. We hope they grow as fond of Chimere as we have.

PS Check out Cam’s Port Vila arrival and parking track. When I say “parking” I mean backing a 30 ton, long-keep yacht, with no bow-thruster up to the seawall (We await the first photo !)
