Lord Howe Island on March 17 at 8.03pm east aus time
anxious to get going. Models are not agreeing. Probably better to wait until sunday as some strong winds tomorrow
Have been on sea anchor for 3 days and will need to be on it another day. All well and Robin sounds pleased with the way the boat is handling conditions. They now have a sked with Gulf Harbour radio every evening. Through Sunday anyway by which time they will be on their way.
After another postponement in January we are now planning to sail Windshadow from Opua to Sydney via Lord Howe in March.
We were not successful in our attempt as we did not get a weather window satisfactory to us within the time we had to depart. So we spent a few days sailing the Northland Coast then returned to our mooring in Mahurangi. We plan to go in January instead. I am looking for crew with ocean experience for the trip so if you are interested please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org .
we are planning to sail from Auckland to Sydney via Lord Howe leaving subject to weather the next full moon. Windshadow is a Tennant 11 m cat. There will be 3 POB, myself Robin Smart, my son Will, and Peter Boyle. We are up to Cat 1, also have a SPOT tracker,
