Whistler is a PDQ Antares 44i catamaran, built in Ontario, Canada in 2007.  In the spring of 2015, while docked in New Zealand, she was bought by Margy and Monty.  She was renamed “Whistler”, where her new owners met and spent their weekends skiing and golfing.

M&M split their time between S/V Whistler and Whistler, British Columbia.  In 2015, they sailed to Fiji and in 2016, to Tonga and Fiji.  For the cyclone season, they have kept the boat in New Zealand.

They look forward to another cruising season in the South Pacific in 2017, starting with Tonga.

Margy and Monty hope you will follow them on Whistler and keep in touch by adding a “Comment”!

    This blog is dedicated to my brothers!  Whangarei had a big car show in the middle of town.  It was quite an affair, with hundreds of cars, live music and crowds.  We were able to wander around before it really got underway.   My favourite!
