We left the starting gate
12 June 2019 | Marsden Cove
It’s official; we have untied from the dock and are spending the night at anchor before meeting with a New Zealand Customs agent tomorrow to clear out of the country and start our journey Fiji. We plan on stopping in Minerva Reef along the way to break the trip up.

As many of you know, it has been many years since we have been out in the open water sailing. As you can imagine, technology has advanced. Therefore, we are slowly getting back up to speed. We now have an Iridium Go satellite system which we use with a standard cell phone. This is how we will hopefully be able to keep you updated with our progress while we are underway.
Thanks to friends we met in while sailing in Mexico in 2009 who caught us just after we left the dock in Whangarei. Like us, Evergreen sailed to New Zealand and stayed to work for a bit.

Hope you are sitting down as GatoGo is getting ready to start sailing again. We are planning on heading up to Fiji after being in New Zealand for the past 7 years. We are currently watching weather and will hopefully be able to depart in the next week.
