“I’m off !”



Day 1 Monday, November 28, 2016

This image is from a new system Glenn installed on WestWindII called InReach. It uses satellite technology to locate Glenn  and then sends an update via email every 4 hours. It’s a backup to the onboard Winlink system that will allow him to communicate his daily lat/long along with his blog entries via email which will be posted here.

I received a text message from Glenn moments ago … “I’m off! Just left Poverty Bay and Young Nick’s Head (named after Captain Cook’s cabin boy).”

Glenn leaves Gisborne

Thanks to everyone in Gisborne who helped Glenn make his repairs and offered their warm kiwi hospitality.   



  1. Hi Glenn, Greetings from Ollie and I. Fair winds for your journey and our thoughts and prayers are with you on your adventure. Lots of best wishes Richie
