When arriving, raise the yellow Q flag and anchor next to the new yellow quarantine buoy located at 17°44.275 S 168°18.597 E. Drop your anchor in about 10 to 12 meters on a coral rubble bottom. The holding is not the best, but you won’t be there too long providing you don’t come on a weekend or public holiday. The anchorage is well protected during trade winds and OK for the evening.

Give Yachting World a call on VHF Channel 16 (08:00 to 17:00) and they will help you organise clearance formalities. When the customs officer arrives he will probably be in one of their skiffs with one of their staff members there to welcome you to Port Vila.
