New Zealand to Europe

Published 15 years ago, updated 4 years ago

We are in New Zealand and want to come back to the Atlantic ocean. The boat is a Lagoon 57′. Can you help me suggesting a route? I read the note on Noonsite about Pacific East. I just need some more information, like the best time, etc.

The logical, and easier route from NZ to Europe is westabout… but if you only want to go to the Caribbean you may be better off to go eastabout possibly via Tahiti. The other alternative is to head north from NZ and make your way east just north of the equator taking advantage of the N. equatorial countercurrent…. you’ll have light winds and will need lots of fuel, but it can be done.
