    Wonder what she's up to, looks like maybe heading for Mason Bay to anchor? Or asleep.....

    The AIS heading jumps around a bit with each update but track seems to be towards that bay. Good luck to her wherever she's going

    (Edit, latest sat AIS does look like she might have turned right towards the cape. )

    Can you point me to a place on the net where I can find her AIS track? Thanks.

    Think you have to pay for that, for satellite anyway. I have just been watching where the boat jumps to every 10/15 minutes. Looks like she's heading for the cape now, looks about 20Nm to go.

    Thanks; I use MarineTraffic for work, didn't think Nereida would show up on it for some reason - but I've got her now...

    I think AIS heading information for a yacht in big seas is always going to be iffy.

    Nope.

    She's doing just fine.

    If you say so...

    Lets see....
    Mainsail may or may not be useable.....if after 4 months it ends up back in the track... and the repair stands up ..
    Solar gone ...
    No easy task taking the fan off the windgen... getting below ... fitting new blade ... refitting
    (wind gen not a lot of use in the doldrums or anywhere wind apparent is less than 20 knots.... )
    Hydrovane no longer a team player
    Relying on making electrons with either engine or gen set ( unsure which ) to drive electrikery autopilot.
    Unknown condition of batteries.
    Out of fresh water ... relying on water maker which in turn is relying on engine/gen set...

    And about 6500 miles to go....

    Not my idea of fun....

    She seems cheerful enough, luckily makes no difference to the universe what anyone's learned opinions are on just another web forum

    I have the feeling she's one of those 'glass half full' types. According to MarineTraffic she's presently around 25 miles SSW of Dunedin, and stopped in zilch breeze. Perhaps she'll be able to get some crucial sewing done on her mainsail - at last.

    Think I agree with Frank; she’s got past the Great Capes, and the idea of 6,500 miles relying on the autopilot and the water maker would not be my idea of fun. Better put in and get everything sorted under her own control than risk having to ask for outside help later.
