As for going to NZ, SF to the Tahiti/Fiji/Cook area is best done between Nov. & May. Then from there to NZ Mid-Oct to Mid-Nov is best. One just needs to follow the weather
patterns and not be in a hurry to make a decent trip of it.
Nice rebuild! If you are bored can you come North and help me
I need to make it out of the Northern Hemisphere my first year. As I said I can not leave until July and about a week further north than you. Most books
say to keep out of the cyclone belt between Nov and March/April? I think, because of my dual citizenship I can stay in the Marquesas
Islands which are within the 10 degree Equatorial safety
zone talked about in the guides, plus they are far enough east to be considered safe.
As I arrive in August I would have 3 months of French Poly before moving North in the Marquesas
for the southern storm season.
It's an idea at the moment rather than a plan.
