Epi Island

Thursday 9th July Epi Island

After the anchor exercise we had a great sail to Epi Island (Lamen Bay) which took most of the day--all downwind for a change.

Friday 10th July
After a look around at the local village and airstrip in the morning we spent most of the afternoon walking to the top of the island to take in the view and lush tropical gardens the locals were tending. Another friendly village with many locals commuting in small (overloaded!) boats to Lamen Island after school had finished for the week.

This is a well known dugong grazing area, but we didn't spot any this trip

The main jetty here is a wreck so all cargo has to be unloaded by hand onto the beach in front of the village
The airport "terminal"

Its a long walk to the top of the Island
