We're nestled near the sandy cove with a line of very different homes just up from the shore (holiday homes?), a backdrop of rolling hills and with little rocky islands all around us. Yesterday at anchor we even had a hailstorm (thankfully after our explore ashore) - we are certainly being reminded that we are no longer in the tropics.

We are now anchored in Whangamumu Harbour which is very protected, has no roads (just a hiking trail out to cape Brett) and is the site of an old whaling station.

Today is drizzly and overcast. We are surrounded by tiny islands covered in oysters at low tide, and topped with lots of green - quite the Maine (USA) vibe here.] <BR/> <BR/>At: 11:50(NZDT) 19-Nov-2018, Outside Temp: 20C (68F), Humidity:60%, Water Temp: 27.2C (80.96F) 25 days  agoShow

The place is littered with moorings, but thankfully good shallow mud for some ways beyond] <BR/> <BR/>General Comments: [We escaped the marina in hopes of having some tourist time in the islands. We're starting with Russell - the historic little town once considered for the place as capital of New Zealand. It remains a tiny town and top tourist attraction so it is time to explore!] <BR/> <BR/>At: 13:20(NZDT) 17-Nov-2018, Outside Temp: 26.2C (79.16F), Humidity:40%, Water Temp: 27.7C (81.86F) 26 days  agoShow

I'm not sure if Kyle is glad to have missed a rough passage (which is more the norm) or so very frustrated that there is not more wind. Either way his favourite phrase is 'stupid wind'.] <BR/> <BR/>General Comments: [Kyle spotted two whales in the distance yesterday (behind us), but otherwise we were quite uneventful.

We have been listening in to the informal SSB Net daily (with fellow cruisers heading to NZ from Tonga and Minerva) - we can hear most people, but our radio isn't so good and people can rarely hear us. We are also having a host of power issues. When the fridge kicks on - the autopilot goes a little crazy - Kyle is convinced it isn't a battery issue, but it is definitely something we'll have to get fixed sooner rather than later. We ate up the last of the salad yesterday (I forgot to mention salad in our last post), and are doing well on the food front I think with that fine balance of having plenty, without having too much of anything that might be confiscated on arrival in NZ.] <BR/> <BR/>At: 06:00(NZDT) 09-Nov-2018, Outside Temp: 18C (64.4F), Humidity:71%, Water Temp: 28.2C (82.76F)Course: 165(degT), Speed Over Ground:5.7kt, Wind:8Kt(from:ENE), Cloud Cover:5%, Pressure: 1019hPa, Swell:1.5m (to:W) about 1 month  agoShow

Seas are bouncy, and we reefed - but it feels good to be moving properly again] <BR/> <BR/>General Comments: [Each day I sort through a different food tub/locker looking for foods that need to be inspected on arrival, and making sure nothing has escaped my notice/memory.

With calm seas and light winds at least make using the hand held wind meter easy. It certainly feels cooler and even with the enclosure we need a jumper/sweater or a jacket at night.

Amazingly Kyle took the thing apart at the guts of the arm that connects to our steering bar and (after much diagnosing and testing) found a corroded wire that he cleaned and reconnected - and presto - our Autopilot is back and functioning.

The second boat called us well ahead of getting close, and insisted we should not alter our course or speed (in Spanish) - but then proceeded to head directly for us. We think he was just overly curious to 'see us' but the chartplotter was indicating it would pass within 30 feet of us (or less) - way too close. Normally such a boat would pass behind us and nothing like that close - but he was definitely aiming to pass DIRECTLY ahead of us - eventually I pulled up and stalled the boat - so we wouldn't be of any risk of hitting into the side of his giant boat, and he called on the radio to complain... LOL (aaaghhh...) - Everyone came out to wave at us - they looked very excited to see us, and then we were bounced around by the wake for a few minutes... Just crazy. Kyle hurt himself yesterday when a winch handle came free while he had his full force on it, and it swung up and hit him in the face. He was immediately screaming that he'd broken his jaw (but in such clear speech that I knew he hadn't) - but boy that winch handle must have hurt (and still does).] <BR/> <BR/>At: 06:00(EAST) 19-Apr-2018, Outside Temp: 20.7C (69.26F), Humidity:70%, Water Temp: 29.7C (85.46F)Course: 283(degT), Speed Over Ground:5.6kt, Wind:15Kt(from:SE), Cloud Cover:100%, Pressure: 1021hPa, Swell:2.5m (to:NW) 8 months  agoShow

This is how fishing seems to be for everyone else - it feels so good to decide we want fish AND actually catch one. We are having some battery level problems, (cloudy days and light winds), But even if we get them fully charged during the day, they don't seem to last the night. Once they are at low voltage the chart plotter starts with lots of fake error messages needing a response every few minutes.

It took a while to recover the giant sail from the water. The sail was old when we got the boat, and we've certainly worked it hard over the last few years - but what a loss. We should have expected it was 'due', but we'll definitely miss that sail until we can find a replacement (which will most likely be a while). The loss of this sail means we have an added worry - we MUST reach Easter Island by the end of the month. If we don't - Maryanne's visa will mean she can't legally stay in Chile and we are uncertain if we can even make landfall to officially clear out - weather is already a factor in 'if' we can land in Easter Island, now time adds to it. Additionally Maryanne had a cold before we left mainland Chile - it has long gone, but left behind a lingering and noisy cough. If she is so visibly ill when we arrive at Pitcairn we'll not be allowed to land (with the very small community there), so currently it feels as though both Easter Island and Pitcairn are at risk - Ugh!

The recent weather has created some new leaks aboard. Nothing too bad, but annoying, including one in our food locker (luckily everything is in plastic tubs so water finding its way to the floor is away from our cans!). I finally managed to clean up all the giant tub of breakfast cereal in I'd tossed around the boat in a big wave previously! On passage we keep to a 'boat time' which is generally some way between departure and arrival points, this journey is of sufficient distance and direction that each of our watches shifts in it's daylight quota significantly.

A little too rough to cook up anything yesterday (so we had leftovers). We are now off our South Pacific – western portion chart now so Kyle only has one chart to plot our daily position (rather than the two he's been using). There was a LOT of sail changes (reefing and unreefing, and gybing) last night (luckily for me on Kyle's watch).

Amazingly we had a ship pop up on our AIS display that was 130 miles away... there must have been some tropospheric ducting as VHF is normally line of sight (for us that maxes out at around 20 miles). All yesterday evening we were able to use the autopilot on wind (the earlier problem seems to have vanished for now). My new wide mouth thermos (just purchased in NZ, and great for yogurt) has decided to start rusting already... Doh!

We know of two other boats that have recently left NZ for the passage to Chile so good luck to those guys (hopefully the don't have to go quite so far North or South as we've managed). Yesterday was so rough (again) I broke out some of our left over camping dinners (add hot water and wait 10 minutes), but I'm really looking forward to cooking some rice today, we normally have it at least twice a week and we're definitely behind on our rice consumption! Both of us are 'getting through' the passage rather than enjoying it (at least on the rough days) – but we keep thinking of that crazy French guy Bernard Mortissier (?Spelling) that after much worse conditions decided he loved the sea, couldn't face people, and just went all the way around again!

After a salad for lunch we've now used all our fresh veggies (only potatoes and onions remaining). We finished 'Minerva Reef' a tale from 1962 of a group of Tongan men who were shipwrecked on the reef on route to New Zealand. So resourceful were they that they managed to build a boat (yes, a boat, not a raft) from planks of wood and a few nails. Rescue only came after 3 of them made it to Fiji.

It started with a fantastic treat of a beautiful sunrise and a 10 minute visit from a pod of dolphins, playing about the bows (very special!). Aside from the hourly log and general boat checks and watch keeping, we squeezed in present opening and calls to family and friends. The connection wasn't great, but it was still nice to hear from 'home'. We've since decided that possibly the phone does not do so well an hour either side of sunrise, and while we haven't exactly done a scientific test, we'll avoid that time in the future.

No signs of other life except for the visiting birds. While it seems to be mostly overcast during the day, Kyle is getting some lovely clear nights for star gazing.

Hopefully Avanti will stay stable until the Freighter arrives and can recover her - and then that she will be fully repairable once it is shipped to New Zealand.

9º 45.852' S138º 52.782' WBegoniaYesterday we spent the day at a little anchorage and village called 'Hanamenu' - below is our story.. We are now at a village called PeaMau - where we hope to see some rather grand Tiki carvings tomorrow - and will then head South to the Island of Fatu Hiva. <BR/> <BR/>Yesterday we were in Hanamenu (NW Hiva Oa): There are no roads to here, and there were as no boat on the village mooring so we assumed it is now only used for getaways by the remaining owners. Indeed we found ourselves the only boat here, and after the dark of the evening descended, it appeared as if nobody was ashore (no lights). Given this, and the expectation of an ?interesting? landing in the surf we went ashore with just our waterproof camera - i.e. with no money and no exchanges. We wondered around the river and possible trails for a while - finding plenty to occupy us (and crabs, and flies and no-nos) - and eventually circled our way back to the old/current village. Plenty of old lava stone built walls and newer wooden homes - some amazingly beautiful (and very well tended) gardens. Eventually we heard a music playing so we called out bonjour so as not to surprise anyone - and were welcomed by one of the owners (he was taking a short visit to tidy up and mow grass after the recent death of his father). He insisted we took pamplemousse (grapefruit), citron vert (limes), and even some wild bore he had shot the previous evening.. and then directed us to use the pool if we wanted to bathe (the ?hollywood pool? is to the west side of beach, within the village - where soap and loofa were also found - it is fed by a waterfall and surrounded by tropical flowers - and on the day we visited there was also a boar head carefully placed to clean in the fast exit water)? Quite the amazing Marquesan experience and welcome! Dinner was wild boar vindaloo that night, and breakfast for the next few days will be pamplemousse :-) How lucky are we???!! <BR/> <BR/> <BR/>Today We travelled [21]nm (through water) on this day trip, We have moved [15.4]nm point-to-point from prior posting <BR/> <BR/>At: 14:56(MART) 12-May-2017, Outside Temp: 31.6C (88.88F), Humidity:69%, Water Temp: 37.9C (100.22F) over 1 year  agoShow
