I am finally home from five long days at sea. Here are some photos. I should have taken a sketchbook along!
Leaving Auckland in the sun.
Dad looking at a huge wave coming through the hole in the rock. On a calm day boats take tourists through the hole.
Home stretch chased by a big rain cloud all the way. It didn't catch us! We were going 8 knots
My other brother, Peter and owner of the boat,
Home at last at Totara North. We traveled that day 50nautical miles in 7 hours. Which is pretty good for a half rotten boat!
