Three major inter-island vessel operators will continue with their normal weekly services.

Venu Shipping, Blighwater Shipping and Goundar Shipping Limited yesterday confirmed that their vessels would sail as scheduled unless the weather situation changes.

Although Tropical Cyclone Pam is not expected to directly affect Fiji, however, from overnight Wednesday and into Friday, the associated active rain bands is forecasted by the Nadi Weather office to bring rain, heavy at times, over the country with possibly strong and gusty northwest winds and squally thunderstorms.

Blighwater Shipping chief executive officer Captain William Vulivuli said the MV Westerland would continue with their Natovi/Savusavu route.

Venu Shipping owner Ben Naidu said the MV Sinu-i-wasa was to leave for Kadavu last night and they would review the weather condition today.

Goundar Shipping’s manager finance, operations and business Rakesh Prasad said as scheduled the MV Lomaiviti Princess 2 would leave for Kadavu tonight.

“The weather is fine for sailing,” Mr Prasad said.

“We will continue as normal and it depends on the captain. If he thinks the weather is unfavourable for sailing then he will call it off otherwise there has been no warning so far so we will continue with our normal schedule.”
