Leaving for New Zealand

We'll be departing Suva at 09.00 local time today, Tuesday. The weather window looks 'interesting' - not much wind for a couple of days and some headwinds at the end of the week but nothing above about 18 knots as far as the forecast has it at the moment. Mind you, it's all a bit unsettled so we'll see what we get!

The routing will include quite a big zig-zag around the weather systems so is about 1230nm and so we should be into Opua around the 29th. As usual we'll aim to update the blog each day and will update http://www.yit.co.nz/yacht/maunieofardwall with our position each morning. As ever we can receive emails (without attachments) on passage.

Looking forward to being on the move again!
