After spending 3 months in New Zealand traveling and obtaining my Yachtmasters I am back in Tahiti. It took about 5 days to get the boat ready and jumped over some hurdles with engine scares. I have a new crew member on board, Ginni Williamson who is from the UK. We met traveling in South New Zealand and she has decided to hop on the boat with me for the next few months. I am expecting about a 10 day passage from Papeete to Fatu Hiva via the Tuamotus. I will keep updates on my SAT phone but be sure to send messages. Alright...gotta get sailing. Lots more to come in the downtime I will be having in Marquesas. Looks like I will be spending Christmas again at sea, I think I can get used to it! This is a picture of me sailing with my friend Tamatoa and the girls over to Moorea a few months ago.
