Hi All,

Another quiet day in (as we have discovered) the city which gets the most sunshine of any in New Zealand. So far the weather here is Orsome and we are enjoying ourselves walking around what is a very pretty and seemingly prosperous town.

This morning was significant in that we repaired the leaking galley salt water pump, and pulled out the offending gear cable, complete with 30 degree bend which was stopping the gearbox being anything other than in reverse. Will see what the morrow brings with respect to how much and when (the usual owner's questions).

The plan is now to remain here in Gissy (to her friends) and leave next week after Marie has joined us. Hopefully the weather will be good for a sling-shot ride down to the Marlborough Sounds after she arrives - looking forward to inducting another member into the silly shirts brigade.

Until tomorrow, TTFN
