Noumea to Opua Passage Pics

December 31, 2017

Here are some pictures from our recent passage from Noumea, New Caledonia to Opua, New Zealand. As passages go, it was a pretty good one with just 36 hours of suckage. It was also one of our longest passages at nine and a half days. Not only did we go the long way to avoid bad weather, but we estimate that we lost about 250 miles to adverse current.

Here are some of the highlights that include flat, calm seas, sparkling waters, beautiful starry nights and the shining moon.

On Legacy, any passage where you can set a coffee cup down unattended is a good one!

Look Ma, No Hands!

Here’s my favorite position: sitting on the sea berth, watching the radar on our new GoFree app:

And here’s Cyndi’s favorite part of a calm passage: when the sea quits coming into the cockpit and we can wash away the salt!
