  5. To answer the original question, I flew from Vava'u to Tongatapu on Real Tonga last September to link to an Air NZ flight home after sailing a delivery up. The aircraft was good, service good, only running 20 minutes late - good for island time. Only other option is to take the weekly ship - the one that replaced the ferry that fell apart and sunk a few years ago.

  14. As I said earlier, I didn't have time to figure out U-tube and no-one with the skills showed up. You were all welcome to come and do it. I also had concerns as to how the projected information shown from the PredictWind website would have been shown - that would require editing in. I wonder if just using a camera would have shown very much. Yes, it was a fascinating talk.
  15. Sorry guys, much as I would like to work out how to do this, I don't have time in the next few hours to work it out. If someone can bring along the gear and the skills and do it, they will be very welcome.
