We had always said some day we would do it. That day had come, and Rob and I were on board our 38ft steel sloop, Il Silenzio, cruising the Fiji Islands and enjoying an idyllic island summer while most cruisers headed for the cooler waters around Australia and New Zealand, away from the hazards of the strong tropical weather systems. So much of what Fiji offered appealed to us—a warm climate, warm Polynesian welcome wherever we went, diverse sailing opportunities and an easy, relaxed pace of life, so the choice to stay through the summer was easy. But we knew we had to be prepared for cyclones.More

Two vessels have sailed from Port Denarau Marina heading for Vanuatu with cyclone aid. They are part of a relief effort being co-ordinated from Port Denarau by Sea Mercy.
Sea Mercy is a charity that has been active for quite some time. The idea is very simple and very effective.
The organisation uses privately-owned vessels, either yachts or other vessels that are visiting Fiji.
They approach these vessels and ask them to take doctors, dentists and medical supplies, including much needed drugs, to the outer islands where access by regular shipping is very limited.
Sea Mercy who are well known in the Pacific for their great charity work in remote islands specialising in medical, dental and eye care and heading to Vanuatu as part of the international humanitarian relief for these stricken islands. There will be three yachts leaving from Fiji to take supplies to the more remote islands and provide assistance to the rebuild.

He said Fiji was now a world-class yacht destination, thanks to the efforts of investors at Port Denarau and Vuda Marina.
