RUNAWAY BAY


RUNAWAY BAY
Pickersgill Harbour, Dusky Sound, South Island, New Zealand
Enroute Erromango Island from Tanna
Tonga 2008
Bay of Islands, New Zealand 2007

Our triple skin Kauri, launched 1984, designed and built by New Zealander John Lidgard, fractional rigged sloop Runaway Bay often gets taken for a “plastic” boat. She is lovely to sail and has done us well over the last 10 years. We have sailed to Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu and New Caledonia plus circumnavigated NZ in all sorts of weather. She is one of the Regardless series of boats that John built and others copied.
