The Voyage begins

Alibi is about to once again set sail on new voyages!

Captain John and Cabin Boy Annie, having just tied the knot, got spliced and become hitched, are setting off into the sunset …and the sunrise….on the good ship Alibi to explore the New Zealand coast, going where many have gone before.

The plan is to circumnavigate the North Island of New Zealand and head to the Marlborough Sounds.

We plan to slip our mooring at full tide in the morning, 14th January. First Mate Tommo and his goodwife, Sally, will join us as we set sail.

After a life spent sailing small and large yachts in New Zealand and around the Pacific islands, we are now up for a new adventure - exploring the European waterways.

  1. Hi Anne and John, I saw your comments on barge buddy Charles Briggs blog site Xeniaboatlog seeking info on cruising in the Netherlands. I’d be happy to answer questions and share our cruising notes from 2016 /17 when we cruised extensively around the country in our 25 metre luxemotor and had an absolute ball, loved it to bits and can’t wait to return. My email address is


    1. Thanks David. We are currently cruising around the Bay of Islands in north NZ on Alibi. We would love to pick your brains. Will wait until we get home and internet is more sure and will contact you then.
      Cheers Anne and John
