We arrived in Bundaberg at about 4:20 pm local time on Sunday. We are anchored for the night and will check in with all the officials tomorrow morning. Then we'll move into a slip in the marina. The rally activities start on Wednesday. This was one of our best passages for very good wind conditions the whole trip. Probably won't be listening to GHR tomorrow since it's an hour earlier here!


Great you had a good trip and hope you are well rested now. Thanks for the relays- I miss them! Patricia

We arrived in Suva, Fiji on July 2, 2018. Forgot to send our report. Very tired when we arrived. Still in Suva since we are still dealing with getting our autopilot fixed. Also had water in one of our fuel tanks and had to have our injectors fixed.


Saw you in Suva . If the autopilot is new and Raymarine NZ Marine Federation are in Denarau tomorrow (friday) and Lusty and Blundell are there ( NZ main agent) . Might be worth attending or calling them via Denarau Marina

This is our position at 9:30 am NZ time. Our autopiot failed about 4 hours out of Marsden Cove. We have a Hydrovane for self steering with sailing and a Raymarine tiller pilot as a backup that can steer attached to the Hydrovane rudder, but not meant for heavy weather. Our autopilot is brand new this season and we've had multiple problems getting it working correctly. Thought we had all our problems solved. Otherwise, all well on board. We are headed to Suva, Fiji. 28-06-18. Thought this went out before, so revised and sending now.
