Veering Back Toward Auckland

01 December 2011 | Rarohara Bay, Great Barrier Island
1 December 2011

An unkempt houseboat anchored nearby has painted on its side "Flip Off" (or perhaps there was a more expressive alternate spelling). Assumed an invitation by owner to be left alone, but learned it was a vandal request to remove the eyesore. F. Off Bay has now joined Corpse Cove in our nascent effort to rationalize chart designations in New Zealand.

Had planned move to Smokehouse Bay, but got waylaid by folks from catamaran Te Harinui for a hike up and around Glenfern Sanctuary - gorgeous views and a swing bridge into the canopy of a Kauri tree. Cool stuff. After return to boat, just before dinnertime, were then ambushed by gluttony and sloth, two of three favored deadly sins, so here we remain in Rarohara Bay. Tomorrow will find us on a perfect, perfect I say, off-wind sail to Kawau Island and thence to Tiritiri Matangi Island bird sanctuary before another graceful, elegant and again exemplary sail into Auckland on Sunday.

Note to weather aficionados: Previous explanation that south of zero latitude "veer" and "back" were opposite to northern hemisphere because of reverse swing as fronts pass is complete bullfeathers promulgated by a weatherman on the US east coast. Resident NZ authority Bob McDavitt revealed the terms as universal so go back to that friend you misled and admit the truth.
