Waiata….. Is for Sale.

Published By


The only thing that is sure in life is that it will change. When we began this adventure it was Connie following Greg and his dreams.

We had an agreement that if things changed and it was time to follow Connie’s dreams then our direction would have to change and, well, things have changed. So whilst Connie has followed me onto the sea, having never sailed before, across oceans as a new Sailor and been there for my dreams, through great adventures and for Connie scary times, its time for a change. You could say its time for Connie!!!

So reluctantly, Waiata is for sale.

Although sad this is also an opportunity for us and for our families so we are looking forward to rebuilding a life in New Zealand. We have not lived in New Zealand, now for over 2 years and those 2 years have been incredibly significant for us.

We have lost parents, gained a son-in-law and a grandson, lost and made new friends, changed countries, so many countries, learnt to sail, built the most amazing home for ourselves on the seas, retired, worked hard and covered over 16k Nautical miles, crossing an ocean (The Atlantic) as Captain and Admiral of our own boat with our son, Nick.

So with Sadness but also a sense of great accomplishment, we are offering our wonderful home to a new owner.

If you have any questions please contact us directly on WhatsApp or on the comments page here.
