Watching your progress every day. You chose the best time to leave - weather bad here ever since. Love to all. X

Almost there. Been fun watching your progress. Hope you caught a fish on the way up!

You are closer everyday! Local Talent is leaving today for the Lau group! Hope to see you in August/September in Fiji!

Wow, pretty wicked weather of the west coast of NZ. Looks like you'll miss the outer edge of the bad stuff. We hope you get to south easterlies soon. Seems to be a pretty good no-wind zone you're in now, eh?

That was to say that Laura was screaming along up on one pontoon lots on the mini cat and WindDancer was motoring into the wind!


Tell Daniel to confiscate Laura's passport otherwise she'll beat you to SavuSavu. !
