We left the fuel dock at Riverside Drive Marina at 2:15 pm
on Wednesday (yesterday) and anchored in Urquhart’s Bay for the
night. Vera is anchored beside us. We will check-out of New
Zealand at Mardsden Point at 3pm and then leave directly for
Lautoka, Fiji. Our course takes up up the east coast of North
Island and then approximately 350 degrees magnetic to Fiji.
Lautoka is a bit over 1100 nautical miles (about 1300 miles) from
where we are. The weather is calm and the forecast is excellent.
We will try to send regular updates.
