Is This New Zealand’s Best Kept Secret?! [Ep52]


We land in paradise after an epic 15 day ocean passage. All we want is Ice-Cream, wild Kiwis, a haircut, hiking with sheep, a good restaurant, boat repair facilities, friends, history, culture, summer weather, epic sunsets and cool nights. Sound too good to be true? Click to find out!

ABOUT US: We are a family of five sailing around the world on our “dream boat,” a performance catamaran named “Archer.” Ten years ago B.K. (“before kids”), we sailed a Lagoon 380 named “Honeymoon” halfway around the world to Sydney, Australia. Along the way we shared our experiences via YouTube and, by happenstance, created one of the first “sailing channels.” We also realized what an incredible experience we were having and that someday we wanted to do it again, only this time with kids.

OUR ROUTE has taken us from the Boston/Cape Cod area of the United States down to the Caribbean and through the Panama Canal. We have dealt with massive repairs in the South Pacific, the Coronavirus lock down in New Zealand, a Category 5 Cyclone in Fiji, and now we are cruising in Covid Free Australia. Videos for all of this to come!
