I had watched a few of their episodes on YouTube and am pretty happy they've decided to leave the country. They had no respect for lock-down rules or the social distancing measures taken under level 3

Yep, I've been looking forward to the "Influencers" getting held up for what they are, freeloaders. It's trending https://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/life/122013694/influencers-are-struggling-in-a

Yep, seems they are not what my idea of a good cruiser should be - Self sufficient, helping the locals with any problems that they have expertise in, and trying to leave things a little better than they found them. Rather than promoting themselves for money. I guess I'm just out of date now...

They had no respect for lock-down rules or the social distancing measures taken under level 3 and were constantly whining about everything here unless they were getting a freebie in return for promoting it. Redneck, self entitled narcissists...

Also my sentiments and I watched a couple of their vids. The epitome of what not to be when cruising. There’s a lot of people doing the cruising and vlogging thing and very few are worth watching.

I've not watched their videos, but when I read the news story, I was wondering what the feek they were up to, leaving a perfectly safe and stable country, with no firm destination and the high chance of not being able to enter any country, or having to sail a very long way... just cause it was cold, and not wanting to 'just live on their boat', but likely being stuck on their boat for a very long time, sailing to the North Pacific (Guam). What do you do when you get to Guam? Hang out with the US navy?

Then you guys pointed out they are vloggers. Sounds like they made a conscious decision to do something stupid so they can create a crisis and sell more videos (or what ever vloggers do).

The whole interaction with the Tongan Navy an Minerva sounded perfectly fine, I couldn't really see what the issue was. Unless you desperately want an issue to make an episode for you vlog.

A small article that contains an update on the cruising family that left NZ because winter was too cold. Also shows they are not the only idiots out there showing no respect for local rules or peoples lives. I do hope they are not allowed back into NZ.

The Solomons case is not the same family; nothing to do with them.
Zatara did go to Fiji (via a short stop at Minverva) and is still in Fiji, will be a few months yet.
Many boats wait out the cyclone season in Fiji.
