Checking out cyclone holes

Warm weather, calm seas–summer in the South Pacific is the best time for cruising. Unfortunately it’s also the cyclone season, so most yachts are already leaving westwards, but we have decided to stay. Instead of leaving the boat in a cyclone pit or marina, we are checking out different, protected anchorages, so we’ll know where to run and hide when a cyclone is approaching. It’s a worrying thought, but we have talked to many people who have spent numerous cyclones here and they fared okay. We’re hoping for a benign, eventless summer!
