Crew and captain are all well up, we're 4 people for the passage, which makes this trip good to handle.
For the last week we have been making our way up the coast from Whangarei via Tutukaka, Whangmumu, Bay of Islands (Urupukapuka dn Robertson Island) to Opua, where we parked in the marina on thursday afternoon. At least this way Christian and Peter were able to see a little bit from New Zealand. Yesterday they hired a car and drove around a bit - to Hokianga and the Kauri trees.
If I feel well I will post our position every day, but it might not happen the first 2 days, so no need to worry. We should be in Minerva within 5-6 days and we will definitely post from there. But one of us should always be able to send a message, so pls check on the german and english blog if you want to know if we're ok. Talk to you soon!
Here are pix from my stocking up the most important stuff for the next 5 months and good for the passage to Fiji.
Storage for dry stuff like flour and sugar (I had to vaccum pack it all because of the weavils (Rüsselkäfer))
Meat, ham, bacon, cheese in the freezer
Marcus' beer production
