We just left Opua at the start of an 8 day passage to Tonga. Very sad to leave but we're looking forward to the warmth of the Tropics again!
The weather prediction isn't brilliant for us - a couple of days of very little wind to start but we hope to pick up some nice south-easterlies on Saturday. We really ummed and aaghed about whether to wait for the next weather window (in about a week's time) but eventually decided to go for it. Just hope the swell isn't too bad as we're motoring out!
We'll update the blog with news as the passage progresses.
