New Caledonia here we come!

After a 10 day delay due to unsuitable weather for the voyage we have got what looks to be a pretty good weather window for the 2019 Down Under Rally - GO EAST rally. 

29 of the 32 vessels that are participants in the rally will depart the Southport Yacht Club tomorrow (Friday 17th May) at 07:00 and exit the Gold Coast Seaway at around 08:00. 

Two vessels chose to depart earlier in the week and another has has to postpone their departure due to a family illness. 

It is expected the majority of the fleet will arrive in New Caledonia in 5-6 days time.

You can track the progress of most of the fleet as they make the voyage thanks to PredictWind and Iridium Communications.
