Sailing Around The World

Day & Passage to New Zealand LANDFALL!

We are currently motoring up the bay of Islands to the Port of Entry Opua, New Zealand. Not only are we making a landfall but we are observing the hundreds of sharks that surface around us. Jade also caught her biggest fish ever and it was a 12 pound Albacore Tuna, sweet! “Dinner”. We are all so stoked to have made the crossing and I am really stoked to be half way around the world more or less. Thank you all for reading and I will keep up the post. I will be posting all my many pictures and videos of the next few weeks.

Current Position: 02:21UTC, New Zealand, Bay of Islands!

Cheers and I will drink lots of great tasting beer you all!

Jacques, Jade, Jess, Ben
