We sailed from Opua this morning . First came the settlement for various accounts . Engine repairs , marina ,duogen repairs and new generator to be installed in March . We still ahve to decide on the new sail .
Then out into the Bay of Islands . Blue skies and brisk northeasterly breeze . Very sunny with high uv index . Perfect . I expect a low pressure area to cross south of us tomorrow so we made for Orokawa Bay which we have to ourselves and give good protection . Probably here tomorrow and then on south on Wednesday . Give me time to finish another Le Carre
