David Hows shares his story of preparing and sailing to a 45 foot Beneteau yacht named ‘Ocean Gem’ across the Tasman Sea from Auckland, New Zealand, via Norfolk Island to the Gold Coast in Australia in late 2013. 

This second of a two-part episode is a step-by-step summary of his extensive preparation and substantial refit and it will help and inspire any blue water cruiser who is preparing to sail across a large ocean. This personal insight into the highs and lows of voyage planning is a great story for every cruising sailor.
