Re: Requirements for Entering Tuvalu

wide and easily navigated in those conditions with a slight surf break on either side reef bordering the pass between the entrance islands/motu.

we then had a nice broad reach to the channel mark about 3miles west of the port,then motored into the wind to the port.

the northern pass is only about 7-12m deep so could be dangerous in northerly wind and swell conditions,but saves a lot of motoring or beating to windward that would be needed if coming from the other 2 passes.

good to hear you got the money sorted,it would have been a PITA having no cash on arrival
