10,000kms

We left New Caledonia with glassy seas and after 161 continuous hours at sea with swell ranging from 0 to 1m, winds from 0 to 25 knots  and boat speed from 0 to 9.5Nm/h we arrived in Opua, northern New Zealand, wearing multiple layers of our warmest clothing and feeling like we had journeyed into winter, completing a round trip of almost 10,000km spread leisurely out over 6 months.
