4 day trip to Mayor Island

20 April 2011
The next morning we were woken by mind and a swell coming into the bay, this was not forecast and we decided to leave then and have breakfast on the way. We headed South toward Tauranga and with all sails up we made good time across the bay.

Until we reached the halfway point and then the wind disappeared again.

We motored for the rest of the trip, with a lazy swell coming from the port side we had a rolly trip back to the harbour.

A big outgoing tide meant a slow trip around the heads and up the inside of the harbour but we eventually made it back to the mooring.

A fantastic trip with good company and just the right amount of excitement.
