Overnight passage

23 April 2013 | Hahangarua Bay

Left at 6.30am and had an enjoyable sail and motor sail over the day. So good that we decided to do an overnight passage to the Bay of Islands. The night was gorgeous - nearly full moon, starry sky, and the gentle whoosh of the swells. Made our way into Oke Bay at 2.30am - visibility was great with the moon. Anchor down, showers and bed.
But a rolly night - lots of swells in the bay so not the best sleep.
The morning was stunning - blue skies, clear water and a pod of dolphins arrived. Headed straight for our boat as if to say Hello and Welcome back! They circled the boat and then headed to shore where the baby dolphins did all sorts of acrobatics.
Pulled anchor to find a more settled bay and now in Hahangarua Bay where it is nice and calm. Tomorrow we head to Opua marina where all the final preparations and festivities begin.
