Oh misery me

in between weather bombs
Whangarei CBD flooding.

Well we have survived another weather bomb event. It was not as bad as they had forecasted it to be (thank goodness). We had some pretty wicked winds, and there was localised flooding, but not as bad as last years weather bomb. The Hatea River, which is were our boat is moored, flooded its banks. But Kabuki was safe and sound on her piles out of the main channel. The only damage sustained was a ripped zipper on one of our side curtains for the cockpit cover (the stitching had perished). I have sewn that up this afternoon ready for our next weather event which is due on Tuesday evening. Oh Joy!!

Vessel Name: Kabuki
Vessel Make/Model: Westsail 32 #425
Hailing Port: Whangarei, New Zealand
Crew: Paul Bowling and Wendy Smith
Paul and I have been sailing around Whangarei and the Bay of Islands for the last 14 years. We have owned a few boats in that time, ranging from a 20ft Trailer Sailer to a 36ft New Zealand built Eric Cox design yacht. [...]
Extra: Thought this would be a good way of keeping family and friends up to speed with our progress on getting Kabuki and ourselves ready for the big adventure.
