And today we did a further rewind of our NZ adventure thus far, upping the pick this morning and motoring back to the Otago Yacht Club, to which I am having the Hydrovane parts sent to. On arrival I found that Windfola was alongside here, so I got to meet her young skipper, Elana, who, as you may recall, is circumnavigating New Zealand to raise money for what I believe is a very worthy cause ( Unfortunately the conversation was all too brief as she was just departing. I took note of her Hydrovane set up. It looked very well attached. Elana said she had installed it herself. I commended her on the good job she had done She replied, “Oh, I just followed the instructions.” Hmm, that sounds like a good idea.

All is well.
