The adventure continues in the Kingdom Of Tonga with some Paul jumping overboard to go spearfishing along the inshore reefs. Shea and the rest of the gang charge offshore in search of marlin and we even get schooled on how to cook some yellowfin tuna Tonga style.
1946 William Hand schooner Regulus adrift at sea with no wind or power after battling a gale north of New Zealand. Leslie working for a solid night and day to get the engine running, but finally, in her exhaustion, called the NZ Coast Guard for a tow. She was just 35 nm from her destination of Opua. Thankfully I heard the call and was able to divert to give her a hand. We launched the dink and I rowed away from Peregrine, which felt like a very strange thing to be doing while at sea. I was able to help her out with the engine, and soon she was steaming off toward the Bay of Islands on her own power. It was a good drill for the Peregrines, and I was very happy to be able to help. I was touched by her letter this morning, part of which ran, "Gretchen and Dirk, I want you to know your ...

After a long awaited return to Starry Horizons in Tonga, we immediately started re-commissioning her and discovered a serious problem. The anodes on our saildrives had completely disappeared and the saildrives had started corroding! This was something that required immediate fixing and fortunately, the only boat yard in Tonga (conveniently called "The Boat Yard") had just opened up the previous year and could haul SH. We ended up on the hard for about a week fixing the saildrives and working on various other projects. When we got back in the water, we were ready to go cruise Tonga! We want to send another HUGE thank you to Kjell and Adriana for letting us stay at Mystic Sands (http://www.mysticsands.net/) while SH was on the hard. Life in a boatyard is much better when you're not liv...

underwater volcano off Tonga was spewing ash high into the air on Tuesday, causing several carriers to suspend air travel to the South Pacific island nation and turning the surrounding ocean blood red, residents and officials said. The Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai underwater volcano, located about 65 km (40 miles) north of the capital Nuku‛alofa, was sending volcanic ash up to 4,500 meters (14,765 feet) into the air, the Wellington Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre (VAAC) said. The volcano, which first erupted in 2009, had been rumbling in recent weeks before exploding violently in the past few days, The New Zealand Herald newspaper reported.

It was a rare clear, crisp, cold, winter day offshore Mbotyi in Pondoland, Eastern Cape province, South Africa (formerly Transkei). The seas were unusually calm that day on the Indian Ocean. That wouldn't last long, soon returning to howling winds, whitecap waves, and giant swells! Did I mention it was cold - on land, at sea, and in the water?! We are four SCUBA divers in a small "rubber duck" inflatable boat with two powerful 110 hp four stroke outboard motors. Clive is captain, Carlos is divemaster, and Levi is deckhand. We are hunting for sardines. It is the annual world famous "South African Sardine Run", a mass migration of pilchard fish up the east coast of Africa. Actually, we are not interested in the sardines but rather the predators they attract. Hungry bottlenose an...
