Back aboard Twister, a NZ fisheries boat came by to inform us that fishing is not allowed in Deep Water Cove. Therefore we sailed to nearby Oke Bay. After anchoring we went for a swim, and Gary shot his second Porae (a NZ fish) which was just the right size for dinner.
We've also been spending some time with Wattie and Di (who are on the boat Cariad), anchored off Moturua Island (where we are anchored as I write this), as well as Wattie's daughter and family who are renting a cabing (bach, pronounced "batch", in Kiwi vernacular) on the island.
As I'm nearing NZ's North Cape, I've been contemplating the passage down the west coast (with a little trepidation I'll admit). The weather forecast looks good for a Saturday morning departure from the BOI. If things go according to plan, I will be sailing into Raglan 3-4 days later.
