Smile Kia Ora from New Zealand

Hi
just signed up to this great forum, we live in Christchurch - New Zealand; our HR 352 is based in the Marlborough Sounds which is on the northern tip of the beautiful South Island of New Zealand. I cruised her extensively, sailed her out from Europe in 2000, arrived here in 2002 and have never left....just love it here and now call it home.
Cruising the waters around New Zealand is just magnificent, come and have a look for yourself!
Happy sailing
Wolf

Hi Wolf

Saw beautiful NZ in 1980 but from the land. Bet it's changed.

Hope my better half and I do make it back by boat. Retirement is soon.

Laura

Hi Wolf. I assume your on the flash side of the hill, Waikawa?? My boat is in Havelock. We have several members here that either have their boats in the sounds, or come across from Mana and Wellington. Hope you enjoy the forums

Hi Wolf,

Greetings from a couple of part time Kiwis. It's a great forum. We learn a lot from it.

Cheers
