Offloaded in Norfolk on Friday, May 20, Oceane heads north to Rhode Island on May 26.
Congratulations to Jim and Linda aboard Chesapeake … starting in Berkeley, CA they’re the first Outbound to cross the Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean and South Atlantic.
The experience of Chris and his wife cruising the difficult Tasman Sea for 10+ years in their Farr 1220 before moving up to the Outbound 46 gives this testimonial a bit more weight.
We had 6 great weeks cruising Northland NZ. A weather window opened up after the latest tropical cyclone (Winston) dissipated so we cleared out of Opua on Saturday to get in sync with a S>SE>E heading west from NZ. We are currently flying along in 20-28kt SE with seas to match. The OB46 is a great sea boat. We can confidently go below and let her handle the conditions, which she does better than us.
We have sailed almost 3000nm (since delivery Aug 16, 2015) on our new OB46 and have found her a very capable and comfortable boat. She attracts a lot of admiration and attention where ever we go.
We will not display in this years Strictly Sail but we do have a 2015 Outbound 46 available to see in Ft Lauderdale. Please call 949.275.2665 to arrange a private showing.
Our next show will be the Annapolis Spring Boat Show, April 22-24.
