Welcome to the Maunie of Ardwall blog

This is the blog of Maunie of Ardwall. After a six-year adventure sailing from Dartmouth to Australia, we are now back in Britain.

Ghosting along

After an overnight stop in Makogai, an  island we visited last year, we left at 07.30 to sail south the 30 miles to the little island of Leleuvia. As forecast, the wind is very light and the sea is calm so we hoisted the cruising chute and are ghosting along at about 2.5 knot in only 6 knots of wind. We're in no great hurry, though, so it's very pleasant.

You'd never guess that Maunie's first owner was Irish!
You can find our location on http://www.yit.co.nz/yacht/maunieofardwall and Leleuvia is just to the south of the big island of Overlau. We'll stay there a couple of days whilst a weather front passes through so the wind will go anticlockwise around the compass from NE to SE.
