Paul and Robyn, Welcome aboard! For several years, Marilyn and I spent a couple weeks each "spring" in NZ and have seen the gamut in weather
... Our rule
when traveling NZ was to pack everything because the weather
will change one way or the other. Am curious.. have you sailed the west side of the South Island? Only did a tour boat in Milford Sound... Seems like it would be heaven on earth to cruise
there. Spent any time in Marlborough Sounds area?
Good luck and look forward to hearing back from you
