Diomedea heading East

admin | April 22nd, 2013 - 20:48

As part of our “Boat of the Month” series , this month we feature Diomedea on our front page.

Many yachts head North during the Australian winter cruising season, but few venture East across the Tasman to New Zealand. That is of course only a jumping-off point for warmer climes in the Pacific – Samoa, Fiji, New Caledonia and those further East.

Word is that perhaps we’ll see Diomedea venture further afield over the next 6 to 24 months. Follow them here on Skipr.net and on their Sailblog.

Fair winds, David and Andrea…

    I sincerely hope that “Diomedea” is sailing the Tasman Sea and not Bass Strait as reported above. Bass Strait is to the South and their GPS could not be that far off course..

    Good pick-up, Al, of course it’s the Tasman that they’re crossing. My New Zealander wife is going to kill me when she finds out about that blunder…
    Anyway, just a momentary lapse of an almost old man, fixed it.

    Thanks for your course correction. I am relieved to know they do not have a faulty compass. Cheers

    It was a pleasure to crew for you on a perfect passage across the Tasman. Once lucky…….
    Will be watching your progress on skipr.

  5. It was a pleasure for our operators to radio sched with Diomedea each evening on their Tasman Sea passage.
