EP43 Mid Ocean MAYDAY! Sailing New Zealand  to FIJI 

In this episode we finally get off the dock! We clear customs, untie the lines and set sail, bound for Fiji. 

It’s a fairly uneventful sail for the first few days and we even get a visit from some humpback whales. 

We have changeable winds and  seas, but plod along nicely until we are  shaken by a midnight Mayday call, which reminds us what an unforgiving place the ocean can be.

After 9 days, we arrive in the port of Savusavu and are more than ready for a cold beer and to settle into life on Fiji Time…
