Wind Star entering North Manerva Reef, South Pacific

Here we are entering a remote reef between New Zealand and Fiji in May this year.  Some boats (inside the well protected anchorage in the middle of nowhere) watched us enter through the gap, somewhat concerned for our safety.  However, while it was an exciting and adventurous ride requiring serious concentration,  it did not feel as bad as it looked!
