11 March 2010 | Auckland New Zealand
It's a glorious day in Auckland - the culmination of all that is sailing -
Junior high dinghy races feet away from mega yachts from the boat show.
NZ just won their 3rd round robin race in the Louis Vuitton Trophy - the bars are full and joyous .
We are prepping the boat for a mid April haul-out - new bottom paint and safety checks before heading off to Fiji in mid may - so 2010 is a quick jump to Fiji and then back to New Zealand ... the best cruising plans are never set in stone - but used as an argument for customs and immigration ;-)
