Sail Rock American practice bombing site

Figure 1
Twenty-five feet high Sail Rock (or Hauhari’i) at the Northern entrance to the Maramasike Passage became the new Malaita practice aerial bombing target in late May 1944, after the fatal accident at the Uru Harbour bombing range. There is shoals surrounding Sail Rock and it is likely American bomb and fuze fragments might be found there. [Map Series X711, 1: 150,000 Malaita South, 1976].
