Updated news for anyone following: the tracking link has stopped working, it appears to be a satellite phone problem, I have the phone company checking it out. Anyway, we are in Nelson at the top of the South Island of NZ at the moment, waiting for a tide and weather window to head to Lyttleton. That appears to be about midday tomorrow, which will get us to Lyttelton early on the 2nd January. So I won't be making any New Years Eve parties, except for maybe one on board.
Internet access appears to be a bit up and down, so I will hold off posting any photos until I get to Christchurch.
I have an NZ phone number in case anyone wants to call  -- +64221840918, carrier is 2 degrees which seems to be the one compatible with my phone.
