Landfall in NZ

New Zealand put on a stunningly beautiful morning for our arrival, the wind finally easing to < 20 knots so we finally had full plain sail for the last 10 miles through the Bay of Islands in lovely flat water.

NZ Customs, Immigration and Biosecurity officials cleared Tintin at Opua without any issues - complimenting us that our preparations for arrival were 'very efficient' (i.e. advance cleaning of the hull, eating up most fresh and declarable stored food items during the passage, spraying for any hitch-hiking pests / insects and preparation of ships and crew documentation).   

Tintin is now able to continue her adventures in New Zealand through until September 2021.  And Richard and I are delighted to be back 'home' again!
