We left Whangarei on Friday afternoon which was Anzac Day and anchored overnight in the river .Yesterday was still so we motored to the beautiful and almost deserted Whangaruru Harbour . This seems to offer good protection in tranquil and remote countryside just short of Cape Brett . The high pressure presently over Northland will rapidly decline today as a front moves across the North Island bringing 35knt northerlies overnight .It will probably be Tuesday before we can move on to Bay of Islands and Opua .
