Alora

Ok so I know it is not my boat Onapua but for a wee while, I plan on sailing aboard Alora, a Hylas 56 up to the islands from here in NZ.
I am going to be sailing with Linda and Steve who have sailed Alora from the USA through the Panama Canal and across the Pacific on the Coconut Milk Run, putting into New Zealand to avoid the cyclone season.

I'll post to my blog whenever I get a chance. Initially we will be leaving Whangarei to sail up to Opua, both in the North Island and waiting there for a weather window to sail up to Tonga via Minerva reef.

I've had a great 6 months here in Kiwi country working on my bush clad bay in the Marlborough Sounds and managed to build a shed on it to collect water in a water tank.
But with the approach of winter it is time to move on to a warmer climate.
