Malolo Lai Lai Island, Fiji
Irene issues instructions for the Coconut Olympics, Musket Cove Regatta
Installing the new batteries entailed pulling the boat to pieces (again). Since there wasn’t much I could do by way of contribution – and there was nowhere to sit – I jumped ship and went and played with Irene and Lionel on Kiapa for Musket Cove Regatta Week.
They’d volunteered to run the Coconut Olympics. Irene and I teamed up for the Hobie Cat races and Kiapa (crewed by Lionel, Irene, Craig from Salty, and me) came second in the Round the Island Race. Oh, and then there was Pirate’s Day, sailing (and playing) aboard Tiger Lily III with Rob and Pete…
