We arrived here on Sunday. We thought we should have some time here. But plans seems to be written in sand...
It is a very nice weather here, 25 degrees or something like that in the middle of the day. A high has almost parked just west of the North island. Doing work on the boat is slow, but we thought we would have a lot of time enjoing lunches in the town and making new and old aquaintances. Oh, yes we have met Martin and Ellen from «Acapella».
Then today we got an email from Seven Star, that they want to load us i Marsden Point, just down the river from here, on Sunday. Very good that we already had planned to launch on Friday. So just before high tide Sunday we shall leave Riverside Drive Marina.
When «Tatt av vinden» is well on the ship, we plan to tour the South Island for a couple of weeks, depending on when the ship will arrive Southampton.
We shall give some reports, both from NZ and later on from the sailing from Southampton to our homeport, Blommenholm, outside Oslo. There we plan to be in the middle of June.
