Weather Whisperers

August 26, 2022 By Andrea Downey-Lauenburg

After a 34 hour flight I finally arrived in Suva/Fiji.

In a few days we will set sail, heading SSE. There are lots of small islands to explore. The weather is fine right now, but we’re expecting some thunderstorms systems at the end of next week, and some very calm winds before. So we’re a bit on a clock to leave the yard if we want to make it to an island before the bad weather hits.

Temperatures, winds and showers, though, remind us on the Caribbean, except for the fact that we’re on our new sailing boat now, and not on a leased big fellow power yacht. We have to plan long ahead again. Fortunately with Mazikeen and Ken there are some serious weather whisperers on board.
