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 email@example.com and I will remove you at once.
Thats all for now.
