En Route to New Zealand

Mike calls at 0700hrs GMT. "It's been good going until now! The seas have been pretty rough with strong winds and high swells, but this is very typical of the Southern Ocean.

We are now at 54°22'S and 115°36' E, just 680nm from Antarctica and 2'100nm from New Zealand! We passed an iceberg today so must remain vigilent. We have two people on watch at all times. Tonight we are expecting a storm to pass, perhaps within the next few hours so have our storm sail up and are ready. We hope it will pass over quickly and expect the strong southwesterlies to push us north and closer to our destination.

Won't be too long before we arrive in New Zealand! Dunedin will be our first port of call and and a welcome rest for the Pangaea team."

All the best!
