Re: Vuda Point Marina in Fiji during Cyclone Evan

Vuda Point is our HH of choice for next year. Since I am an armchair admiral I have some comments.

First why where so many of the boats flying canvas? Why did the marina not insist that all canvas was taken down? Also the claim up unto Evan was that no boat had ever been damaged at VP. Obviously now the Manager and his staff have time to review practice and make the necessary changes to make a great location and design better.

Hindsight is always 20-20, but I would have been frigging furious if some boat left with its bimmi and sails on had destroyed by pride and joy.

There has been a serious management restructure happen in Vuda. One assumes it is an improvement.

Positively, socially deviant.
