Lutz und Gabi wohlauf - noch 380 Sm bis Neuseeland

Hans-Uwe Reckefuß

Oettingen

wie schon von Michael and JoAnne Gray geschrieben, hier noch einmal für alle nicht-englischsprechenden Freunde von Lutz und Gabi: Es geht ihnen gut, gutes Wetter, ein ausgedehntes Hochdruckgebiet vor Neuseeland. Vermutliche Ankunft Mittwoch, 24.10.2018. Leider ist ihnen der Zugang zu ihrer Webseite verlorengegangen daher kam per Funk die Bitte, diesen Eintrag ins Gästebuch für sie vorzunehmen, damit alle informiert sind. Viele Grüße, Uwe

SuAn Lost Communication With Web Site

Michael and JoAnne Gray

Guemes Island Washington

Lutz and Gabi sent us a text message via HF radio advising us that they have lost connectivity to their WEB site. They are doing fine and did not want their friends to worry, but there will likely not be any updates soon. They advised us that they have about 380 more miles to go and expect to arrive in Whangarei latest on Wednesday, October 24. Also, there is a big high pressure system over the north of NZ, which they were about to enter. Meaning the wind of average 20 knots will soon disappear and Yanmar San (Diesel) will need to help. We are sure they will email us if there are any changes. Michael and JoAnne Gray

Dear Lutz and Gabi, Just picked up your passage update and are happy to hear all is going well! We have had incredible weather here with yesterday breaking the record high temperature set back in the 1990's. It reached 72 degrees in Seattle, but was a little bit cooler on Guemes. Your trip description is Nuka Alofa to Whangere....are you not planning on checking into Opua first? In our opinion checking in to Opua is likely the better choice for several reasons: There are opportunities to anchor, access to services, and shared rides for provisioning (not as convenient as Whangerei however). Also many of the cruisers stick around for a time to enjoy the camaraderie at the Opua Cruising Club. Take our comments with a "grain of salt" as we are biased for Opua as it is a place where we have many friends and wonderful memories. You may even see "Destiny" there when she returns from New Caledonia. Looking forward to your next update dear friends! Lotsa Love, MnJ

Palmerston and Nuie

Michael and JoAnne Gray

Anacortes

Hello Dear Friends, we are so happy to hear that your experience at Palmerston was wonderful and memorable. And now excited for you to enjoy Nuie. Your photo of hoisting the dinghy brought back lots of great memories. We hope we can talk with you when Jill and Brent are here next Sat Sept 22.

what a surprise to find you are the SuAn people i met in 2014 when i joined Harold's "Tagtraumer". I remember how Lutz shared his charts with us. Your charts and explanation on how you made them was fantastic. Listening to you made me realise just how much electronic navigation had changed since i was fishing in the eighties. Your visit to our boat was very memorable to me for all the new things i learned. Who would have thought then that we would meet again on this very far away island in the middle of the Pacific. Great to catch up and hear of your travels since then. Happy travels guys! Sherrin

We have net here for a bit so we’ve been catching up on your travels. Looks like all has been good with th exception of Gabi’s brush with death. So very glad to hear all worked out okay. Hope this finds you feeling much better. Happy Birthday to Lutz. Wish we’d have been around to celebrate with you. We hit Suwarrow on our way here to Am. Samoa.

Mount Pahia

Michael and JoAnne Gray

Anacortes

We are so thankful that Gabi was not seriously hurt by the rock. Mount Pahia was amazing, hard work (especially the last scramble), we think the rope is new since we did it in 2002. We will try to call you the weekend of the 22nd when J & B are here.

A big hello

Jill

Banderas Bay

Hi G and L, I just caught up on your log! What a scary experience with the falling rock on Gabi. Really good news nothing is broken, but I’m sure it takes some time to heal from the impact. What a scare... Safe passage to you both and SuAn. We are down in PV giving Cayuse some needed TLC. It’s HOT! Take care you two.

Hi Lutz, Gabi and Steve, How wonderful that Steve is visiting and you get to experience the wonders of your cruising together! The most spectacular (and difficult) hike we have done is Mount Pahia in Bora Bora! You will need good footwear to be safe...the last 100 meters is a scramble to get to the top. It is worth it! Love, MnJ

Missing You

We spent two days in Huahine after leaving Moorea and arrived in Bora Bora yesterday. We certainly do miss your company. It is our great hope that we shall meet again in Tonga or perhaps New Zealand.
