Waiting for Weather

On the way up from Wellington we motor-sailed as far as Napier and spent a night there hiding out from some forecast strong head winds, not sure if they ever eventuated but we had a nice night and a very good sail the rest of the way to Gisborne. We are at present waiting to head north if the current northwesterlies ever die away! We had expected to be away by now but yet again we are waiting for the prevailing wind to develop! On the plus side the weather here has been quite nice, we haven't had any of the thunderstorms and hail etc the rest of the country seems to be having (and the beer at the nearby Tatapouri Sport Fishing Club is quite cheap!)
