The Adventures of Duet 
Duet at anchor, Tahanea Atoll, Tuamotu Archipelago, French Polynesia

This is the blog of Duet, Hull 15 of the Nordhavn 50 series, and her crew, Ron and Nancy Goldberg.  Prior to this, Ron and Nancy cruised aboard a Nordhavn 46, Hull number 50 of the series, also named Duet. When not aboard Duet, Ron and Nancy are based at Lake Tahoe and can be reached at ncmgoldberg @ gmail.com.  

Duet is now in Fiji, where we plan to cruise until early October. We will then continue to New Caledonia, where Duet will join the Go West Rally to Bundaberg, Australia.  We expect to arrive in Australia in early November. 

Duet Arrives in Tahiti

Duet arrived safely today in Papeete, Tahiti, after an uneventful 300 mile passage from Tahanea Atoll, in the Tuamotu Archipelago. This completes the first part of our journey, which has brought us 3,900 nautical miles miles since we departed Mexico in mid March. It has been an incredible trip thus far.

We have made one change to our plans. Duet will be staying in French Polynesia until mid 2018, rather than continuing on to New Zealand in the fall of 2017. This area is just too beautiful to rush through, particularly after all the effort it took to get here. So, when we return to the boat in late August, we will be planning three months of cruising in the Society Islands and the Tuamotu Archipelago.

More detailed blogs about the journey thus far will follow. In the meantime, we wish our readers a pleasant Northern Hemisphere spring.

Oh wow how glorious. I think you''re very wise to stay put. I see so many pushing along just to complete the journey rather than enjoying each place and getting to know them. Hopefully you will post some photos when you''re back in the US. Wonderful, Nancy and Ron. Thank you. Hugs, Sue.
