In Whangarei we met with Pelle and Ulla from the Swedish boat Loupan. They have been friends since we met them in Shelter Bay two years ago. This season they have been to Fiji islands and had many interesting experiences. We also met for the first time Martin and Ellen from the Dutch boat Acapella. Together the six of us had two nice restaurant evenings together. All three boats are in Riverside Drive Marina. Maybe we shall meet again in March.
We hauled out Tatt av vinden today. That was a more exciting experience than we liked. The wind was strong, even if we tried to go into the slings of the travellift between the squalls. We had to go stern first. With the help of several strong people we managed, just in time before the next squall hit. It was a close call... All the afternoon the heavy squalls have come over the area with 15 - 30 minites between them. It is nice to have moved into a motel!
