re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

On this forum getting bis of information that is adding up.. Regarding that paper it was not a piece of paper but a website to Spot that would use GPS coordinates but that quit working 2 weeks ago. Sounds like that held somewhere for bad weather around June 4 then becalmed so may not have actually set off until the 10th. If so and someone said 1200 miles to Sydney. I'm looking at the 22nd June. My mom today got a overseas call. Heard her name then died. We always call our mom to leave info as she's always home to pick up telephone. So they may be trying to get ahold of us but not able too.

re: Schooner Nina - MERGED 3 THREADS

Hi Friends Nina, today 15 june 17 05 pm NZ
Just had an update from my mate who has today spoken to SARS NZ search & rescue they both have been over present weather wind patterns & expected wind the conculsion is that Nina prob cannot get to Australia until the 26th unless she motors all the way,thats another 11 days that has to be less of a worry for you,I think another chap said that already so he is spot on with his thoughts.Let us know if you get a call so can relay it.cheers.

Cheers for the update - and very wise to be getting advice from the SAR folk direct, and not simply relying on internet folks (myself included!).

Dont need a sextant to find Australia, just a compass, you could even just follow the sun.

Re: update schooner Nina

Didn't sound like there was any trouble but it's always nice to hear that an underway vessel is doing just fine.

Re: update schooner Nina

Cheers for the update - would be good to hear when she does reach port, and maybe even some details of the trip from the folks onboard even if only a link to a blog (my guess is that nothing exciting happened - just slower than hoped for).
