Come Along For A Ride!


Most of this past week has been devoted to last minute fixes, shopping for accessories (like plastic boxes) and slowly moving our belongings aboard AVATAR. Friday Circa is turning us loose. We’ll finish bringing aboard all the stuff we have stored in a storage locker nearby on Saturday, and Sunday morning we’re setting off on our first real cruise. Back to Urqhart Bay for starters, then to Great Barrier Island, and then points south including Tauranga.

However to keep you entertained in the meantime, since photo opportunities have been few and far between, here’s a link to AVATAR in motion on one of her early sea trials two weekends ago. It will give you a bit of a feel what it’s like to be aboard. Click HERE for an 8-minute hi-definition video taken by Steve Dashew and hosted on his Setsail website.

And here’s another link to a slideshow Steve put together as a sales tool for the FPB series.

More later, from Great Barrier Island!
