Hi Liz, Atoll has it all in a nutshell......cruisers are NOT crossing in the hurricane season ( Nov/ Feb approx) and my advise to you is don't jump on any boat that is!!

Prehaps re - evaluate your timetable to be in NZ....or fly!

Re: South America to French Polynesia

you might try getting down to ushaia in chile,the season is just starting there for cruising patagonia/antartica, then a few boats leave there in feb- march for the falklands and points north.

not in the right direction,but a lot closer than fiji if you want to get some sailing in...
