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.
