....and the wind came with a bang late afternoon...reaching along a westerly wind making very good time 106nm to Opua
...engine off ...remaining fuel on last reserve for approach...... trying to sail in no wind not easy :-) so will just have to make the best of it... drifting east.... absolutely no wind ... a bit frustrating after having come this far ...all well onboard and must admit super peaceful.... wind wind wind, where are you??
...motoring again.... no wind...all well onboard preparing for approach into NZ. An amazing feeling to have traveled more than half way around the world and approaching one of my most wanted destinations to visit.... getting colder!
very light as in GHRadio skip
...motoring.... winds S5kn..all very well onboard...
on passage to Opua, or maybe Whangarei
Enroute Fiji to NZ - Spinnaker up 5.0kn COG 180T..0.5m swell calm... slight ripple..all very well onboard... no luck on fishing yet
Motoring at SOG 5.5kn COG 188T..1m swell dead calm... slight ripple..all very well onboard... will try some fishing
Doing 5.5kn SOG 218T.. Excellent 6.5/7 kn smooth water sailing but am having quite a strong current against. Just in the NE side of the high pressure centre. Expect to be on 25 00 S 173 03E on the 24/10 sometime which will bring me in the middle of the high ready to turn towards the North Island headland once the NW to SW kick in. All very well onboard.
Approaching east side Conway reef, remaining broad reach. All very well onboard... getting into routine. Moonraker on my east side close by.
Left SW Fiji yesterday around 1700 local, good broad reach since then, AWA 60
