Catherine and William arrive in Tahiti and pick up their crew (daughter Minetta and her boyfriend, Nick) for the next six weeks. The four of them explore the Society Islands and then head off to Tonga. Min and Nick jump ship there and take off to Fiji while Catherine and William set sail for the final leg of this journey... destination New Zealand.
I had a really big problem with my computer when we arrived in New Zealand - it crashed!! When we got home I took it to the computer geeks and we were able to retrieve all of the photos and when I say all I mean all 10,000 images that were stored in the hard drive!
Well, to make a long story short(er), I was able to restore some of the photos to their high quality but many I was not... so the result is what you will see in our slideshow of images of our trip. Bill and I have high quality images in our minds but we did want to share some of what we experienced with you.
This is the slideshow of the first leg of Cathy and Bill Norrie's South Pacific voyage on their Pacific Seacraft Crealock 37 yacht "Terrwyn". This segment takes them through their preparations in Canoe Cove, B.C. and Port Townsend, Washington and finally they set sail from Bamfield, B.C. After 40 days at sea they arrive in the French Polynesian islands of Marquesas. Some of it you have seen in the videos we posted earlier but many are new.
