A group of 8 of us are planning our New Zealand sail trip for 2013. (Thanks Zapper for your suggestions to me)
We have narrowed down the dates and now we are searching for boat companies. We have sailed quite a bit and have used Moorings and Sunsail the most. Moorings have quoted us a price as has a local company called Sail Connections. One time we sailed around the Greek Islands with a smaller company and the boat wasn't up to the standards of Sunsail. We are concerned about this in New Zealand, but gosh Sail Connection's prices for the week are $2000 less than Moorings. Is this a case of "you get what you pay for"? Does anyone have experience with Sail Connections or can they offer other charter companies I should investigate?
