The Vanuatu archipelago has been Rivendel II's cruising grounds in the South Pacific since July 2000.
During the "dry season" (May thru Ocotober), when we run Project MARC
(Medical Assistance to Remote Communities) , the central base of operations for participating cruising vessels
is in the Sakao island anchorage (Maskelyne group, SE Malakula). This year, the 3-masted schooner bark "S/V Alvei" "S/V Alvei"
" will enable larger volunteer teams to participate than during the previous 5 years. The August and September expeditions
still have openings for a few volunteers with technical and/or educational skills. Volunteer application forms
can be found on the Project MARC website
When we return to our home in the Rocky Mountains (Summit Park, Utah) during the cyclone season, Rivendel II remains dry-berthed in the Port Vila boatyard.
