I don't see how they would be 'stuck' in Tahiti? With a Carte de Seyjour, they could easily sail to Nuka Hiva or sail to the eastern Tuamotu for hurricane season, or even Hawaii to the north. The

Well yes there sort of is rational and sort of a sh*t load of it. As noted they did ask to come and were told No so what did they do, they thought f*ck you new Zealand, f*ck your laws, f*ck the r

This is a Stupid decision and will effect peoples well being, if not their lives.

  1. It is not realistic to tell the yachties out there to "go home" as voyages and seasons must align for small vessels to have the best chance of safe passage.
  2. There is no way to come to NZ safely once a cyclone is present!
  3. Most passages from the Islands are min 10 days, most of the quarantine is already done, so the risk is minimal
  4. This is a very big loss to the local marine industry

Yep the director general may be a good doctor, but he obviously has no understanding of small boat voyaging. :-(
