Thursday, November 1, 2007 - Preparations for Departure
01 November 2007 | Vuda Point Marina, Fiji
Departure for New Zealand is set for tomorrow, Nov. 2 in the morning. The weather gurus have predicted a very good window for this passage but they really can only see the first 4-5 days of a 9-10 day trip. For the second half you take what you get. Sand Dollar is in good shape and is ready for the passage. We have taken on provisions, fuel, and water. There are about 10 boats all leaving in the next couple of days so there will plenty of folks to talk to on the radio. My new crew member is excited about the trip, his first ocean passage.
All else is well onboard.
