I have been in Fiji
for 5 years, and have have spent all 5 cyclone seasons in Vuda Marina, in the water
, with no problems. My insurance
specifically said Vuda was the only Marina Above 20 degrees they would cover Rhapsody. The company was bought by Geico, and I am still covered.
I was here, on the boat
, in the water
for Winston, a Cat 5 cyclone. Worst damage was minor to the rub rails, from bumping into the boat next to me.
Boats in the pits were all good, albeit tilted about 10 degrees. Hard stands not so good . All 5 fell over.
So, Vuda Marina works: it was specifically designed for cyclones. The pits work
great, but you do need to reserve one well ahead of time, like right now.
There are only so many, and pits are booked early.
To top it all off, the staff is terrific, and the Boatshed Restaurant and Bar is the best in the South Pacific
