Year 2

May - Join the Pacific Rally to sail back to Fiji or back to Tonga.
August - Vanuatu - join the rally events throughout Vanuatu.
September - New Caledonia.
October - Bundaberg Australia on the Go West Rally.

Australia is another great place to stop for a while with great boat repairs and places to leave the boat while you explore ashore or head home and of course some excellent cruising grounds too!

Year 3

January - Tasmania - Join the VDL-C Cruise.
February - Cruise slowly back up the East coast of Australia, enjoy the stunning Whitsundays and then Onwards to Asia or alternatively cross the Tasman and head back to New Zealand to enjoy exploring with the South Island Rally.
May - Or return to the Pacific on the Go East - Pacific Rally to revisit the places you missed or enjoyed the first time round.
October - Back to New Zealand or Australia - both great places to end your journey and sell your boat. Or carry on doing circles in the Pacific or continuing on around the world!
