[Tara Pacific] Rough sea from Whangarei to Sydney

This second year of the Tara Pacific expedition began with a navigation of almost 2500 kilometers between New Zealand and Australia.

From the first nautical miles, until Sydney, the Taranauts faced heavy wind and rough sea. The end of the austral winter often offers conditions of this type, with many western depressions, and Tara didn’t escape this rule…

In the end, it took a little more than a week of a challenging sailing for the schooner to rally the calm of Darling Harbor and the dock of the Australian Maritime Museum.
