We arrived in New Caledonia on 1 October 2015 after a six night sail from Fiji and were looking forward to exploring the place for a couple of weeks. But when the perfect weather window for our sail to Australia presented itself, we felt that we had to take it.
So after six nights in the Port Moselle, we are again casting off the dock lines and heading to Sydney via New Castle.
It wasn’t a total loss.
We did manage to put the boat in order and provision a variety French favorites (baguette, cheese, eclair, etc).
I was able to drink up some beautiful street art after a drought of murals Fiji and experience a bit of the city of Nouméa. I look forward to seeing so much more when we return here in May 2016.
Once we leave the shores of New Caledonia, we will be off-grid for a week but will be sending periodic position updates via satellite phone along the way. You can follow our updates on Farkwar, Twitter or in the sidebar on my blog.
