Fiji Cruise

Looking at a short sail in Fiji. Has anyone sailed directly from Rainbow Reef in Somsomo Strait to Yasawa Island? If so, can it be done leisurely through Bligh Water in three to four days?
Thanks!

We did something by much like that in 2010, although we did two day hops west from rainbow reef and departed for Bligh from the west end of Vanua Levu. Doable, yes. The caution is wrt to timing arrival near the reefs off the Yasawas, it is eyeball navigation in a coral minefield; you have to have good light.
