arrived here after 19 days at sea. Been here over a week and loving it. Thanks Patricia for putting our positions on the site, while en route.
enjoying the peace and quiet of Phaeton Bay, Tahiti. Good shopping near by to stock up and preparing to move over to the reef for snorkeling etc. Getting used to the tropical heat! Happy to be here!
Arrived at Tahiti - this via relay as no copy at GHR.
139nm to landfall!
all well on board. Great propagation today so IGH heard Catheriine directly
hard to hear now but may get a relay in the future
all well amd we can still hear them. Their computer still awol
eta Jun 3 depending on N quadrant winds!
good comms this morning
getting hard to hear
all well, except for the laptop
in the front but all is well
The computer is not working so that means no email unless they fix it. GHRadio will get their radio reports and update daily. All well as plenty of wind to move them along briskly
baro at GHR is 1021.2. Not much wind around but going well
all well, a bit bumpy
making fast progress with wind and waves behind us. 3 reefs in main, 2 reefs in yankee poled out to Stbd., small staysail. All is well aboard.
a bit bumpy but all well.
Not gone yet!! At anchor in Whangarei river, ready and waiting to go to Tahiti, but not impressed by the strings of low pressure systems coming through.
Approached NZ with a lively sail. At night the wind dropped and we sailed gently along the coast to Marsden Cove and arrived at the Quarantine dock this morning at 7 am. We have now cleared in with customs and bio-security and are moored a few berths further to the customs dock at Marsden Cove Marina.
Had a peaceful night sailing at 3-4 knots in light SSW winds, now sailing beautifully and making good progress. Will arrive early morning. Caught a beautiful 6kg white tuna. Looking forward to dinner tonight and a glass of wine to celebrate this passage4
motoring. ETA Marsden Cove sometime Sunday 23rd November 2014
motion is getting more comfortable as sea is reducing. Wind on the nose, blowing us further to the East, not ideal. Looking forward to getting more Southwards hopefully soon.
relay from Astarte
Glad the wind turned to SSW all day at 15 to 22 knots, which gives us a very close angle towards our destination, sailing at 51 to 60 degrees to the wind, Kahia is hopping through the waves like a rocking horse with the hydrovane as happy tail doing a superb job steering us. Sorry to hear our SSB transmission is bad, not the best time to check the terminals. We are grateful to Astarte for giving a brilliant relay.
hopefully fixing the radio installation will be top of the To Do list in NZ. This via Astarte
Through the front and back to some sunshine.
Light winds from the NW, sailing gently under goose-wing and enjoying the sun.
hrd to hear. This via relay
Had a pleasant night, with mostly light winds, motor sailing now, a hot and sunny day.
