Y2 Varuna

News, Oct 30, 2016:  We have just purchased Varuna, sail number Y2. She has been sitting on a mooring in Whangarei, New Zealand for a few years. She is currently on the hard getting ready to go back in the water today. We will sail her down to her new home in Auckland later this month.

Update Dec 1, 2016: a quick update on Varuna. Having come off the hard the engine blew as she was taken back to a mooring, so we have yet to sail down the coast.

We are delivering a new engine on Monday and with luck we will be back in action in a couple of weeks, and then get her down the coast.
