Nuku'alofa to Opua

Tonga to New Zealand in seven days, ten hours! Breezed through immigration and customs and were carried by the current in to a slip in the Opua Marina. Made wonderful, new friends instantly on the docks (it takes a village to get a boat into a slip in these currents) and immediately began to settle into life in the village of Opua (pop 500).

I have always thought that New Zealand was a little too far to fly to for a vacation.... but who in their right mind would EVER sail here?
