Finally we are underway towards New Zealand,
It's been a tense couple of weeks of preparing, waiting for weather, deciding to go and then changing our minds.
Yesterday there was a sizeable flotilla heading South so we were not alone in choosing this particular weather window.
After 7 years of mostly downwind passaging this one was never going to be the same but 24 hours and all is well onboard so far.
We had dolphins come to escort us through Momi Bay pass yesterday which is always a welcome sight and the sea state has been good so no seasickness yet!
964nm to go as the albatross flies
