First PENDANA Blog Entry

Hello and welcome to Pendana’s first blog entry. The reason for the blog is so that I can post daily updates as we transverse the notorious Tasman Sea as we head from Sydney, Australia to Auckland New Zealand in our Nordhavn 62, Pendana.
 
At this stage the weather is not playing ball and our hope is that we will be able to depart sometime next week between December 10 – 14th. I can assure you that all fingers and toes are crossed that the weather will improve so that we can embark on our first ever, true blue water ocean crossing.
 
Below is a weather chart of how things are looking at the moment our hope is that the southern ocean, which feeds into the Tasman Sea will dissipate over the comnig days.

As is clear form above impage six metre seas is not something we want to have to endure for our six day crossing so fingers crossed it improves and improves fast!
 
If you do not want to receive these automatic updates then please send me an email to james.ellingford@gmail.com and I will remove you at once.
 
Thats all for now.

  2. Hi James,

    We’re looking forward to your blogs. We have N43-34 and are based in north Scotland, but the seasons over now up here and we’re missing boat stories.

    Like many retired Brits, we’ve toured both Aus & NZ and can easily see the attractions of this passage! Last year, we spent a day sailing around the Whitsundays and a couple of years before toured the NZ west coast. The Pacific is pretty impressive…..

    Anyway, you’ve got a Nordhavn, so that’s the tool for the job – have a great trip.

    Colin & Janet Ingram
