Panthera at Fairway Bay where we are beginning to prepare for the ICNZ Pacific Circuit Rally in May

Hope the preparations are well on their way! I first saw that people sailed around the world and lived on their yachts in Whangarei. sp? We are in Australia from June 24th until July 24th.,So if you are going to be in Ausse over that time, let us know and we will make a trip to Bundaberg sp? to have a meal together. Nicole and Andreas have had an offer accepted on a house about 15 minutes from Noosa..We will be there most of the time. Your boat looks so beautiful!

Bon voyage Helen and Ben and safe travels. Will look forward to reading about your exciting adventures.

Fantastic! Bon Voyage - keep us up to date with your journey Love Currance & Yvonne

Best wishes Helen and Ben - another exciting adventure ahead.

Panthera - Heading Out Of The BoI

We are now an hour out of Opua and it's a beautiful day to start our adventure! Yachts ahead of us and behind us as far as the eye can see. All heading to Cape Brett and beyond. And all motor sailing at this stage in swells of about 2 metres.

Panthera - Watch this space!

Saturday has been confirmed as departure day! So we're off back to Opua to restock the chocolate (and other goodies) consumed during our sojourn in the Bay!

Panthera - Don't Get Excited!

It may look as if we're on the move, but sadly it's only out into the Bay of Islands! Next weekend is our next projected weather window (we've had them before, but they haven't materialised!) So we're enjoying being out on the water again ... as we continue to wait, wait, wait! Lovely sunset followed by sundowners on Malakite. ..if it weren't so cold we could imagine we were in Tonga!

Panthera - Still in Opua

Cyclones Donna and Ella have delayed our departure. . we sit and wait while the weather chaos clears!
