About four months ago we registered on this board to ask a question and post a response to a different thread. At the time, TaoJones encouraged us to pop over here on meet and greet to introduce ourselves to the Cruisers & Sailing Forums
community. We're a bit tardy, but I thought it was about time we took TJ up on his invite.
We are a couple in our early 30's, who sailed down to New Zealand
, RI last year. We've just returned to the North Island after a fantastic road trip around the South Island (lots of stories and pictures on our website: Mata'irea.com ... a boy, a girl, and a boat
). We've got 2 to 3 weeks of work to go before the boat is ready to go back in the water
for another year of cruising.
Before we left we found websites like this one and cruisers' blogs to be immensely helpful in our planning. If not helpful, we hope that our site is at least entertaining.
