I was hoping to come SE thru the Vitiaz Strait into Solomon Sea.
I seem to have an easterly current under me and the winds gave been mostly WNW with varying strength. It appears the ocean wants me to go through the St. George's Strait on the other end of New Britain. I am going more east than south and I can't make Vitiaz like that...
One thought since I would be in the Solomon and Coral Seas during the cyclone season, was to consider pulling into Rabaul, then trying to go from Rabaul to Daru, by way of Lae, Oro Bay, Kokada Trail, Pt Moresby. This would require lots of kayaking and hiking -- what a logistical logjam!

First I must get to Rabaul if that's the way ocean takes me.
