Goodbye New Zealand

Our last dawn in Opua

Very emotional day. 

Goodbye to Craig and Kirsty from Noe Noe

We’ve checked out, got our duty free booze, sadly said goodbye to many good friends including Craig and Kirsty on Noe Noe and little Eva on Sea-Esta who we may or may not see again, and we are motoring out of the Bay of Islands.  It’s a beautiful day, we’ve got the main up and gently motor sailing to the entrance.

We are in the company of Norsa, Forteleza and Toucan along with about half a dozen others who are joining us on the NICA net.  I’m going to spend my birthday at sea but we are on the way to Fiji so I can’t complain.  Any emails now need to come to mdqf6 at sailmail,com (replacing at with @).  We will be updating our position on Pangolin which you can find by following the link on our  ‘Where are we now’ page each day. 

We’ve had a wonderful time in NZ and are very sad to say goodbye to such a beautiful country.  We have a wonderful season ahead visiting Fiji, Vanuatu, Solomons, PNG and down to Australia in November.

So Goodbye New Zealand
