Behind The Scenes: CORONA JOURNEY NO.46 – WIND & SEA


Capatain Ben Millard drink

A behind the scenes photo essay by Ryan Glover on a recent voyage off the East Coast of New Zealand. Skip James, Jack Mander, Ryan and Captain Ben Millard loaded up the thirty foot H28 yacht 'Midas' with supplies and set sail for a small Archipelago of island out from the Port of Tauranga. The journey was just as much the destination - they were hunting waves and the unknown and didn't mind taking their time to get there. Typical to New Zealand they were assaulted with a myriad of weather conditions. The weather man was never right. 

Special thanks to Captain Ben Millard, Corona, Skip James and Damaged Goods Zine.
