Re: Sailing to New Zealand from Plymouth England summer 2017

My Lidagrd was built 1983 launched 84 named Rouge Two, renamed Runaway Bay then Jubilar then we bought it as Valkyrie from Terry Iverson. I would not have sold it if i could have found crew to sail all the way to England then back again. Wife will not sail but has given me a leave pass. Buying a Dufour in England gave me the opportunity to sail UK waters then home in a boat that should do me well for the rest of my sailing years plus not have too much maintenance during that time as she is a well looked after 405.

Re: Sailing to New Zealand from Plymouth England summer 2017

Thanks for the info. It seems you got a very good price for your vessel. My Young 42, Jipcho, was used by Jim Young as the plug for the mold he used to make his production Young 43. She was built in 1975, so if I can get half of what you got I'd be pleased. With whom did you list your boat. I will likely arrive in Opua in October 2017, and would be looking for a place to keep her secure while I go to live / work in Taipei, Taiwan for awhile. Any recommendations? I once rented a camper and drove around the Northland. I think I remember Hokianga as a lovely protected harbor, but quite shallow. Right?

A broker came looking for my boat for a chap who wanted one. Terry Needham from Allboat skype terry_needham email terry@allboat.co.nz web Home Page - All Boat Brokerage Ltd

Opua Marina has doen a big extension so berths should be reasonably priced or swing moorings also plus there is also two other brokers at the marin. I have a berth at the marina where we will bring the Dufour back to 2018.

Yes the Hokianga is a large harbour with many mud and sand banks, keeps the water nice and warm for my Laser sailing plus teaching kids to sail Opti and P class. We have a few Sunbursts in the small sailing club also so good to teach kids to sail!

Re: Sailing to New Zealand from Plymouth England summer 2017

Hello Hokiangadad, the reasons for choosing Bocas del Toro were: ok hurricane protection should I end up having to leave the boat there for longer, reasonable safety, close enough to panama canal for starting the next leg, good flight connection back to Oz via San Jose (Costa Rica), berth or hard stand price and it seems like a pretty friendly place. Any forum comments would be appreciated!
