On Saturday morning a heavy low is just passing New Zealand, the last thunderstorms go over us in the morning hours, and we have just cleared out of New Zealand.
“Awesome start” we think, both a bit insecure with a strange feeling in the knees and in the stomach and a slight headache in addition.
We let the worst blow pass and afterwards losen the lines with the help of Lydia and Hannes from the Blue Lilly. Not having really sailed for more than 6 months we have to swallow a few times, going out with the wind, the current and the waves against us. What a start!
