18/6/16 – 30/6/16
In part 1 of this blog we shared our voyage to Noumea and Vanuatu on the very big ship Pacific Pearl. Now on our small ship Calista we were about to follow in her wake. With Marcel, his son Phillipe and two other crew, on Diddys we are about to clear Border Security and make our way out of Moreton Bay and head east by north east for Noumea, 770 nautical miles away as the gannet flies. We suspect that Diddys with greater length and a crew of four will not be with us for long.

Our preparations have been extensive, and when space and internet permits, we will share a little of our voyage across the Coral Sea to Noumea, and our travels in the islands, and atolls. We look forward to bringing this to you, and will publish when we can. Our final few days have been challenging in analysing the weather models that relate to this passage. We are hoping that fair winds will prevail.
