Instead of going back to Auckland for the summer, we have now decided to go to Brisbane. Terry Moran is joining us for the four day passage and we expect leave Noumea on October 28. The plan is that we will fit the stabilizers and upgrade some of the systems during the summer and then make our way North. We will join the Sail Indonesia Rally departing Darwin in July and then head on to Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. This route is becoming increasing popular and should suit our boat very well as there generally very little wind. 140 yachts participating in the Rally left Dawin in July this year!
Our friends Anne and Don Myers (Harmonie) along with many other European and American boats that have been with us across the Pacific will also be making the same passage.
