  1. Any water inside a boat makes it extremely hard to control downwind as it rushes forward when the boat surges down a wave. It becomes a compounding problem as the anchor locker typically stays full as the bow is getting more water over it.
  2. With no covid you would clear out at Bora Bora, stop at maupiti (last atol in FP) then suwarow (northern cook islands), nuie, tonga Minerva and NZ. Or the southern route aitutaki, palmiston, nuie. But with covid I'm not sure exactly where you will be allowed to stop. As jon said Minerva is a great point to leave to NZ but I think you need 2 weeks at sea before entering NZ and they class that as a port even though its uninhabited.
  3. Hey Ben, the Beneteau we sailed as a family down from France to NZ we named Rogue. I love the name and it's probably pretty accurate! A family gone ROGUE! So only fitting that the next family boat was called Rogue II. GONE ROGUE DEFINITION TO GO ROGUE informal to start behaving in a way that is not normal or expected, especially by leaving your group and doing something dangerous.
  4. I remember that too. Was an amazing sight. Think I was on Mint for that one.
  5. We had a really fun day on the Rogue II. Was a voyage of discovery for us learning what makes the boat go and what sails we actually have. No idea of the sail crossovers as we hoisted 2 old gennakers we had never seen and a new code zero that we had only checked to see if it fitted so the reach down to the noiseys was a bit painful changing between gennakers and code zero to find something that worked. The guys who had decent small flat gennakers made good gains on this leg. Watched Phil on the deep purple blast past us on that leg like we were standing still! They looked fantastic and rounded
  6. Rogue II is entered now.
  7. I will take a couple Jono. Can catch ya at the briefing.

    That book looks like a great read. Might have to try and find that one. Maybe we should start a crew.org book swap thread? I have hundreds and I'm sure others have as well. I'm off the the south island for a 2 week campervan trip next week. Hoping to check out both Greymouth and Westport. Havent been down the west coast by road since I was a kid, only a few times by boat. Did kaikoura, marlborough and Nelson last weekend.
  10. Going back a few years.... Alaska in 2001 on Shaman. Kodiak island, Prince William sound, Kenai Pennisular and back down the inside passage through Juneau, ketchican and onto Seattle. Followed by a cruise down the west coast of the USA onto mexico and back to Hawai where I started the voyage.
  11. Na it's a monohull that departed from Aitutaki in the cook islands with a friend of mine on board.
  12. I know of a yacht currently just going past the kermedec islands on it's way to NZ. Passing right through the middle of that frontal system. Dont think it's going to be a very nice few days for them. Potentially extremely nasty even.
  13. Is this the battle of the Townson 34's!
