Chesterfield Island DXpedition, 2015 (OC-176)

Update #4

on .

Six members of the TX3X team are now in Noumea, New Caledonia, five arrived by air and one by sea.

The boat arrived on Thursday 23 Sept and is docked at the Port Moselle Marina with a crew of 6. She had a relatively comfortable ride from New Zealand, with some moderate seas north of New Zealand and then the seas settled down which made for a smooth ride, total time at sea 7 days.

The other 6 team members are scheduled to arrive Noumea on Saturday, 26 Sept.

This is a holiday weekend in New Caledonia, many businesses and government offices are closed. We are planning to depart for the reef on Monday 28 Sept after Customs and Immigration formalities are processed.

We will send out an update just before we leave Noumea.

Aboard the boat is a crew of 5 and one amateur, Pista HA5AO. She’s following the New Zealand northeast coast and will soon be on a course to Noumea.
