Cook Islands: Avatiu Harbour, Rarotonga - dredging and harbour realignment works started

Rarotonga's Avatiu Harbour's redevelopment, dredging and realignment has started. It would probably be easier for those doing the construction in this quite small harbour if cruising yachts instead chose to stop at Penryhn, Aitutaki, Palmerston or Niue until construction is complete, hopefully sometime later this year.

This notice is being broadcast daily on INMARSAT-C now:
