A shot of Yasur, the active volcano on Tanna. This was taken when leaving for Port Vila.

This is the first good view of Tanna I recorded on the 10th day out of Opua. The passage was a lot easier than having gone down to New Zealand. The wind clocked around to the NNE and hit 25 to 30 for about a day and a half right at the end. I got under the lee of Anatom and waited until it backed to the SW for an overnight run to Tanna. The clip was taken the next morning about ten miles out from Port Resolution, the destination.
This is the only clip I will upload of the main part of the passage from New Zealand to Tanna, Vanuatu. I don't know why I chose this one but it captures a lot of the kind of frustration one goes through when singlehandling long passages.
