After a pleasant break in Dunedin for Christmas waiting for another favourable weather pattern, we are now on the move again. NE winds are forecast for tomorrow evening. So, at 1400 we departed Otago Yacht Club with the high tide, dodging a large merchant ship coming into harbour at the same time, and motored to anchor back near the harbour entrance in preparation for sailing later tomorrow.

All is well.
