Gearing Up For The New Zealand Voyage
The last three days have been spent repairing, cleaning, and overlooking Dragonsbane right down to the last bolt. I have been watching the weather windows to make our 1400 nautical mile voyage to Opua New Zealand. We will be departing Suva, Fiji on Monday 11/11/13 afternoon for New Zealand. We will sail through the south Pacific Cyclone belt and down to were the gale winds of northern New Zealand blow by at 50 knots. I have been looking forward to this challenge for a few months and its great that it is finally here. It should be a wet and wild ride down. Like always I will post my position and whats going on each day.
