Around Waiheke

Been hiding out from the wild and windy (well for Auckland) weather but a couple of weekends ago we circumnavigated Waiheke with a friend from down South. Friday had an excellent sail, fine weather, ~15 knots down the outside of Waiheke to tuck in to a little bay near Man O War. Turned the engine off once out of the channel and turned it back on Sunday afternoon heading back in to the marina. Saturday and Sunday were a bit greyer with rain but we still had a couple of good sails. Sunday morning dawned very misty and atmospheric with a large three masted ship looming out of the mist. Quite windy for getting back into the marina made more interesting when the spring broke!
