    We've made it to New Zealand

    We are safe in New Zealand.

    Sorry this is a bit overdue! There has been much happening to "Dave" since leaving Fiji.

    It was always going to be a more testing passage than any other we had done previously and we were going late in the year as most yachts had come north to warmer climes already from New Zealand. However we spent a lot of time planning and getting the best advice we could. Some advised us against taking and some advised that with proper ...

    ... white cliffs of Dover , England, which I haven't seen so couldn't compare). These are light colored cliffs right on a long beach with black sand, the sand was so smooth and the beach inviting for a long walk but we had to continue.

The whole thing was a big ...

    The sun dropped lower on the horizon casting a golden glow on Orca as we sailed South, to the North behind us the dark band of cloud that went all the way to the sea. Finally we were out of the weather system that we had battled through for what seemed an eternity. At 130nm we were nearly there, and in calm sea conditions, then I saw them. As the sun meets the horizon there they were in the distance with the setting sun behind them, to the Northwest, the "Three Kings Islands" ...
