If you sail, you don´t blog – that is my résumé of the first weeks sailing around New Zealand. Since our departure from Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, I have not typed a single word on my computer.
There was simply no time. In recent weeks, we’ve been too busy facing the stormy conditions and heavy waves on the east coast of New Zealand’s North Island and making way. Our goal was to spend New Year’s evening in the Marlborough Sounds on the South Island. From the very beginning, it was clear to us that it would be a race against time in our 8-meter sailboat.
