Ha! Not the local NZ mob. Ya got enuf there for a mob?
The mob of cruisers on the coconut milk run who seem to think they need to blast thru the S Pacific in a season, to NZ in October. Sounds like a race
not a cruise
Where to go? Well for starters I've cruised in French Polynesia
in Dec-Feb and it's very pleasant. Of course there are legal
restrictions, perhaps, and some storm danger
. West and North of Polynesia are many-many nice places that are safe from whatever weather you wish to avoid. With no mobs, Kiwi nor Yank.
