Hi from Auckland NZ

Hi, we're James and Hannah. We have three young children and have just finished the first part of our circumnavigation. We have been at sea as a family for two and a half years. We arrived in Opua about three weeks ago. We are now enjoying Auckland and spending time with family. Would be good to chat with you. Take care and happy sailing!!

Re: Hi from Auckland NZ

Welcome aboard carpediem,

We're anchored next to a 52 ft. trawler yacht called "Seas the Day". I hope that makes the corners of your mouths turn up, and I also hope you have a super time in NZed, a most beautiful country.

Ann

Re: Hi from Auckland NZ

Welcome to some of the best sailing NZ has to offer.
The "bay" will be busy over Christmas / New Year after that you will almost have it to yourselves, good sailing from North cape to Tauranga. Heaps of good anchorages, Smoke house bay at Fitzroy on great Barrier especially for yachties.

Re: Hi from Auckland NZ

Howdy and Welcome Aboard!

I think it is so cool when kids get to grow up on a boat!

Such wonderful experiences and close family bonding and time spent together as a family. Cool!
