Well the wind died sooner than thought and then arrived again sooner than expected. It just might be something to do with ye'old Cook straights. One reef in and a full gib it's a wee bit of a bumpy sea but much better than expected and far more pleasant than our downward journey. This might be to do with the fact we now have monster numbers of fine merino wool tops and bottoms,fleece rugs and sheepskin boots.
We're on our way past The everso dramatic Mount Egmont covered in snow and looks like it's rising from the sea. totally stunning in the mid afternoon sun.
