Will be in NZ Aukland end Nov. Quite poss will buy next boat whilst there, compass
28 or custom 34, if still available and exchange rate still good. Anyone with info on best time of year/route from NZ to Oz. Departure point NZ doesn't concern me as I can always get to departure point. Would prefer to end up in Far Nth Qld, but can handle central NSW. No timetable so departure date doesn't concern me either. Just looking for best time of year to do the deed.
Currently checking out weather
patterns and currents, but would appreciate 1st hand knowledge.
Also 1st big crossing, largest to date 3days for 250nm. Will be 2 of us on the trip if it comes off, if not the trip will be reversed sometime mid 2010.
Have read of black spots ??nth of NZ, are these uncharted waters, bad comm areas, no weather
reports??? From memory they were talking NZ/Fiji, but can't find the site/discussion again.
