SHENANIGANS on New Zealand's Famous Island.🍻🐶🏊


Location: Kawau Island
Latitude: -36.42000000
Longitude: 174.86000000
Published: 9 Mar 2021

Join us this week for a sailing trip to Kawau Island in the Hauraki Gulf, New Zealand. When you are a fulltime liveaboard and living on a sailboat, often times, you can get stuck in 'boat prison' doing boat work. When you get a chance to sail to a remote island, you always say yes!!!

We sail there on a 37 foot yacht, Grantham Flyer. We learn about wallabies, pohutukawa (New Zealand native trees), and New Zealand's first governor, Sir George Grey. We also pass by Mansion House, though we don't go for a visit. And of course, we check out the Kawau Boat Club for some beers and pizza. Unfortunately, we have to head back to Gulf Harbour Marina, but Monday, we FINALLY get out of the marina after being STUCK there fore 2 long and unexpected months!

Come join my wife and I as we learn to sail and have new sailor experiences on our new Whiting 40. We are a brand new sailing couple, and have fallen in love with the sport. Many sailing lessons have been learned so far as we learn how to become sailors. Our first mate, Pivo, keeps us out of trouble and is also learning along the way.

We are starting our voyage in New Zealand where we have been living for the last 4 years. But we are going zero to cruising because we're from the mountains of Colorado and have zero experience! Our first sail was with the sailing school, Great Escape, up in Opua, New Zealand (home the 2021 America's Cup). We hope our lessons from a beginner sailor will help you also as we set out on a multi-year sailing adventure around the world.

We hope to become a fulltime sailing / cruising family soon, as we love the sailing lifestyle so much! We love traveling, meeting new people, and seeing the world. We hope you come along for the adventure!
Thank you so much for having a watch! Please like this video and subscribe to our channel!

Fair winds & calm seas,
Danielle, Conor, & Pivo
