We have arrived safe on Thursday at 12.30 pm after 12 days at sea in what was a very challenging crossing. We got everything Reg winds gods could throw at us. Apologies to those following us re updates but we had limited power for several days an d no motors
Safe Now ???

So glad that you're back and safe in NZ: this trip must be one of the most memorable for you - weatherwise. Congrats on navigating home safely, and I know one lady (starts with a 'J') who is so happy now that she knows you all landed safely. Well done! We reckon Santa Claus helped you home safely because you've been such good people. Cheers to you all for a wonderful festive season. Lynn and Harold Durant

Hi there Jane! (We did write a message before this one but, oops, but I think I lost it somehow.) It's great that you're all enjoying a wonderful journey. We read about an earthquake under the waters of the Pacific and were praying it didn't reach you; plus there's been a tornado spinning around somewhere in the Pacific, but you looked pretty cosy anchored in the bays. We wish you a safe journey home, with very kind winds behind you. Any clues as to when you may be returning home 'downunder' in the Wild West? Melissa has been wonderful (like you)! We are both well. xx Lynn and Harold

At last we've worked out how to view your wonderful cruising. We hope that you're all still well and happy, and that there has been no trials or tribulations. We're well and lovely Melissa is doing a great job for you. Weather is really winter this week, but it's great to see the gardens loving the rains. The Eagles are still in the Top 8, and hopefully they have lots of luck this weekend here at home against Port Adelaide. Best wishes for a safe journey home. xx Lynn and Harold
