Late Summer Trip March 2007: Huruhuri Harbour

The good weather couldn’t last forever so Tori went for a last swim at Whaler Cove, feeding lots of fish in the water with muffins that hadn’t been a success. Then we sailed to Hurihuri Harbour in anticipation of a blow. Strong NE winds, dragged anchor and picked up a mooring as we went past. We had checked it out earlier but didn’t think there was enough water- guess there was! The next day it was still blowing but mostly sunny. We went for a long walk, racing each other up each hill. Tori’s sandals didn’t survive the day! Waited a couple more days for the wind to ease before motor-sailing to Waiheke. Quite bumpy through the over-falls at Collville Channel and quite a confused sea all the way to Hooks Bay. From Hooks Bay we went via Home Bay to Bayswater, tying up in a fresh NW with some help from friends on the dock, CP was first off…
