Landfall in Australia!

Totem is in Australia! Our passage from Noumea to Coffs was a little shy of 900 miles, and Totem rocketed here in five days + 1 hour. It was near ideal conditions for us (average around 20 knots with apparent mostly square on the beam), and the most comfortable sea state we’ve had in a long time. How delightful to have reasonably predictable swells from a single direction… trust me… those bi- and tri- directionals are no picnic.

We’re taking some time to recover, but plan to head for Sydney as soon as we’re rested up and the weather allows. Meanwhile, I’m going to dribble out a series of posts from my log during the passage.

  1. So happy the crossing was fast and the winds were good. Big hugs from CO. Do you have good folks to connect with in Australia? ping me if you’d like introductions.

  2. Yay! Sounds incredible.
    On a sidenote, we watched that video you posted on the “Stuff” and wanting to not have all that “Stuff”. Very well done – I agree with it wholeheartedly! And I had never noticed that all the politicians call us “consumers” – ugh. What a wonderful choice you made 🙂
    Just wish we were still out there too. Enjoy!

  3. Congratulations on arriving safely! What an amazing accomplishment. Our whole family has enjoyed reading about your journey across the Pacific…can’t wait to hear about your adventures in Oz!
