Everybody says Suva sucks, but we enjoyed it. Granted it was a bit noisy. There are big rusty fishing boats running 1-cylinder generators day and night, Nearby shipyards and drydocks seem to work around the clock. But it was interesting and not that loud.
RSYC has a big open clubhouse, a mediocre cafe and a big open friendly bar. G&Ts $3.50Fj ($2.50 US)!!! Yay!
Suva's central business district is bustling, with department stores and many small shops and restaurants. And real drugstores! And coffee shops with good coffee! We hadn't seen those in months.

We met some new people around the yacht club: a Finnish family was anchored next to us, a couple from Nanaimo and N Carolina, and Peter from the shipwrecked Troutbridge who was working on his boat, Then we all went our separate ways....After a week of shopping and internetting, we weighed anchor and set sail for Ono and Kadavu islands to the south.
