Nanea is beeing prepared for the trip to Fiji in Pine Harbour marina. The bottom is painted with 4+ full coats of new primer and antifouling paint. In addition, skeg and ballast pocket in keel was repaired.

Nanea will go to water on Tuesday. Basic maintenance stuff to do next week (oil change, fuel and water) and then we go.

We have a new crew member. Milja visited us last summer at Waiheke and told us she would be keen to have offshore sailing experience. Our schedules matched and we are very happy that she can join us for the passage to Fiji.

We hope that weather permits us to start our voyage next weekend!
