Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

This is the blog of Maunie of Ardwall charting our adventures as we sail around the world. This season we spent 5 months exploring Vanuatu and are now on the east coast of Australia.

Tonga to NZ, Day 2

Position at 05.00 UTC, Friday 18th
 
21 degrees, 2 minutes south
176 degrees, 33 minutes west
Speed over ground 7.5 knots
 
A very quick update as sea conditions don't make typing easy! We left Vava'u yesterday lunchtime and sailed out through the western islands into quite a boisterous sea. The wind has been consistently higher than forecast and we have 3m swell but we're going well (over 170nm in the past 24 hours).
 
We are really hoping that things calm down a bit tomorrow as this is a bit of a challenge after 3 weeks in calm waters!!
