All aboard, we’re setting sail for some of the pacific’s most remarkable destinations before sailing across to Australia and back to our home, New Zealand.

We’re travelling alongside a fleet of sailing friends, on the Sol Maria, a fully equipped Catamaran Bahia 46 with twin diesel engines, onboard electricity generation, radio and satellite communications including email, fresh water makers and most importantly sails to harness mother nature’s wind power.

We plot our course using onboard computer and navigation equipment from Raymarine.

There’s sure to be some fishing along the way, can’t beat fresh snapper or tuna cooked on the boat BBQ!

Check back here regularly, or sign-up for newsletter updates and we’ll keep you posted on our voyage.

There’s plenty to see and do aboard Sol Maria, from Tairua New Zealand.

If you’d like to send us a note, please email [email protected] No attachments or pictures please, there’s just not enough time to download images and enjoy the ocean.

Bon Voyage!

Gavin, Lica and Shae Lightwood-Morris
