Hi from New Zealand!

Hi there,
I have regularly visited Cruisers Forum to research various sailing things and have decided to sign up so I can post and respond!
I am currently based in Lyttelton in the South Island of New Zealand, where we regularly race and cruise. The plan is to buy a bigger yacht - probably in the Med where we plan to sail for a few years before sailing her back to New Zealand via the Caribbean, Panama Canal and the South Pacific.
I have just started writing a blog about our adventures and future plans. Anzac Sailing Around the World | Sailing, yachts, adventure and sailing around the world! and we also have a Facebook page if you would like to follow along - https://www.facebook.com/anzacsailingaroundtheworld

Many thanks - I look forward to rafting up somewhere along the way!

Cheers
Viki

Re: Hi from New Zealand!

Welcome aboard, Viki. As you have found, this is a great source of all kind of information to help with your dream. I have a well kept Mason 53 on the market up here in the Bay of Islands if you want to take a look a little closer to home. There are pics in the album on my profile page. All the best with the search. Cheers

Re: Hi from New Zealand!

Welcome aboard Viki,

I'm feeling somewhat amazed you wouldn't seek out a Kiwi yacht for your travels. Some beautiful boats built there.

I'm sure you've a reason for your plans, and good luck to you.

Ann
