Our passage continued today, leaving Great Mercury Island bound for Gulf Harbour, a distance of 56 miles. On leaving the anchorage just as dawn was breaking (after getting up and making ready to sail in the dark!), it was a passage up the east coast of the Coromandel peninsula, through the Colville Channel and into and across the Hauraki Gulf. The Lat/Log recorded here is to ensure the Google map follows our progress, rather than suggesting that we took a short cut across land!
