Welcome to CruisersWiki!

We all look forward to your valued contributions to the Cruising Wiki to help it grow as a useful, free resource for all cruisers around the world. Now you are registered, you can set your personal preferences in "My Preferences" (link at top R/H of page when logged in).

Spend a little time reading the Wiki Help and the Style Guide to gain a better understanding of the Wiki formatting and how to edit articles. Also, please read the Cruiserswiki Copyrights notice, as well as the General Disclaimers (links at bottom of pages) before starting to edit. Then, do add what you can - even correcting grammar and spelling errors in articles is a great help - but do not use the Rich Editor to do so, since there is a problem with it at present. It is easy to see if you are going wrong, since you cannot save your changes to a page without previewing them first.

Use any page's "Discussion" tab (top of page's menu) to ask any questions or make any suggestions about that particular page.

Finally, please note that massive changes by a new editor are liable to be considered spam and the editor will be blocked. Please concentrate on editing pages of the places that you have actually visited. Also please avoid using the "Rich Editor", it does not work well and creates problems.

Again, welcome and have fun! Bring out that hidden "Cruising Guide writer" in you. Athene of Lymington 06:41, 8 October 2014 (BST)

Transportation in New Zealand: Christchurch

Good start on this page.

New Zealand has a third major city you know.  :) Actually there's Hamilton, Nelson, Dunedin, and all of those other places.

You might want to contact haiqu who's just acquired a place in Wairoa, Hawkes Bay and has been using the local buses to get around the region there. He can probably let you know what it's like around there.

Christchurch has a pretty good bus network that extends to Lyttelton, you can probably find someone who knows more about it than I do. I made some comments on that in the Christchurch / Lyttelton page. The network in fact goes across via ferry to Diamond Harbour which is a good anchorage with shelter from a southerly. There's an electronic card thing called a "Metcard" which you charge up with credit and use on any of the buses, it gives you a bit of a discount on fares in exchange for pre-pay.

Thanks. I was getting around to adding those other cities, but it's good to have other input, too. Motorracer 07:16, 11 October 2014 (BST)
