Check out tikatravels.com - an Aussi couple slowly delivering their O55S from Panama where they bought it to Perth. If that doesn't make you jealous I don't know what will ;-). We met them briefly - always very exciting to meet a near-sistership. Their writing on the blog is a reflection of their personalities. And no patreon grabbing.

Hey Travis, no change to the start dates (unfortunately, have work commitments to work around). Maybe another time. PM your details and we can meet up for some summer sailing around the Hauraki Gulf.

Re: Fiji to New Zealand late October on Outremer 55L

Not familiar with how to PM on Cruiser Forum; but, I'm interested! Wife says I need to get back on the ocean. So;
I'm a fit 67 in age, have been buoy racing for 30+ years, and Ocean racing since 1999.
Raced in four Pacific Cup races (on smaller boats), including double-handed on Moore 24 in 2014. Also raced on Class 40, Farr 44, so familiar with one-person watches. Can provide references if you desire.
I think this trip could be fun as I love the open ocean.

Re: Fiji to New Zealand late October on Outremer 55L

Hi Fxykty,

I would love this chance to sail with you, I have I suppose limited experience that includes a number of sailing courses for competent crew, have also skippered two charter Cat's. Next year I am looking to buy my own Cat and sail around Australia, therefore this experience would be a wow and so invaluable to me. If you can put up with the many questions I am sure I would ask, I will do what ever is required on board to help out. I am sociable and easy to get on with.

I am a NZ citizen living in Australia and can be contacted on:

kevin.dawe@gea.com
+61 408 322 524

Extremely keen!
Kevin

Re: Fiji to New Zealand late October on Outremer 55L

No, it's a straight shot with a bit of a dog leg to the west from Fiji to NZ. We're heading to the north part of the North Island.
