Greetings All. A-TRAIN has been sold to a very nice fellow from Whitianga who is planning for Fiji this season if weather ever settles down. After the sail and sale, we flew to Tonga and stayed three weeks in the Queen Mothers Fale or Cabin. What an honour to be accepted as guests of the Royal Family and stay in her Fale during the mourning period. Hard to describe that feeling. Wow. We are just now back home in Canada enjoying spring and warm dry weather. Selling came with a very mixed bag of emotions and we are still not sure what we have done but Fred wanted her so we made a deal. Packing up and unloading a cruising boat is a daunting affair and not without stress but we got through it. Looking back at sailing videos now we really miss being at sea and ripping along at speed and we wish everyone out there ongoing cruising fun and a superb sailing season. We will lurk here for a while until hunting season opens at least.


We can certainly empathize with you since we sold Gypsea Heart in New Zealand three months ago in a similar situation. We are trying to acclimate to life on land with an RV. What a wonderful experience you had in Tonga.
