Once safely inside, raise the yellow Q flag and proceed to the quarantine area - where the boats are shown in the aerial view of Port Vila shown above.
Anchor next to the 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 we will help you organise clearance formalities. When the customs officer arrives he will probably be in one of our skiffs with one of our staff members there to welcome you to Port Vila.
