We got out the big scary sail today! Day was beautiful with the promise of summer to come. But with a high sitting over the North Island there was not much wind and flags on harbour bridge were half-heartedly flapping about. We dropped mooring ropes just after 10:00 and headed out.

We were right to be suspicious of the wind. Woke up this morning and it had shifted to the north east and was blowing straight into Waikalabubu – caused that really nasty side-to-side roll that we all love to hate. So we moved to Woody Bay, Rakino and had breakfast – bagels, cream cheese and […]
