We are now in Opua marina again having had a great couple of weeks cruising the Bay of Islands. Allan and Angus have now arrived and the rum supplies are being put under some pressure! The girls are getting on well witn Angus, who is giveing as good as he gets.
The Island cruising Association Rally has started up in full swing and we are fully into our final preparations for departure. We have attended a number of brieifings and social events in the lead up to departure, and have provided some assistance to a couple of other boats in getting their systems up and running prior to depature. Unfortunately the weather has not been conducive to getting moving and we are unlikely to be departing until about Wednesday of next week. We will take the opportunity to get a bit ahead with school before we get away.
We will provide updates as the weather picture progresses,
