On passage

Position: 38°13′ S, 178°29′ E

Just passed Tolaga Bay

About to start overnight watches for the third night on passage.

Yesterday we caught a tuna while trolling. Yum! Ate tuna steaks last night. Freezer is full so Capn John restrained himself today and didn’t put a line out.

Today we have enjoyed a beautiful sunny day and felt a little frustrated with the lack of wind! If we get enough wind up go the sails….only to have it disappear within a few minutes. That happened around 3 this morning and the engine took awhile to start and Alibi did a 360° before the engine started … right near a reef.

Probably will round East Cape in the early hours tonight.

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.
