This summer, Scott and Mary Flanders, owners of a Nordhavn 46, Egret, will
embark on a journey of a lifetime when they take their boat from Europe to
New Zealand by way of Cape Horn. The couple plans to depart Gibraltar in
August and will spend 16 months on their oceans-crossing voyage.
But first they are seeing as much of Europe as possible. Having left Turkey
last month where they had been laid up for the winter, the Flanders are
working their way down the eastern Mediterrnean and are currently in Greece.
"Egret" was one of the 18 boats to participate in the Nordhavn Atlantic
Rally (link to NAR section) in 2004. They have enjoyed Europe over the past
two years, but are anxious to see more parts of the globe. Their voyage to
New Zealand will be covered extensively on nordhavn.com. For now, you can
