A couple of times a week I find myself driving to St Heliers along Tamaki Drive and as usual, find myself looking out to sea and wondering why I'm in the car and not out on the water. Anyway, for some time (months) I've noticed a large ketch (although both masts are the same size so probably not technically a ketch) sitting at anchor off St Helliers beach. I don't think there is a mooring out there and I'm not sure I'd want to be anchored there in one of our big NE-ers but it does seem to be there every time I pass that way.
Does anyone know the story? Is someone living at anchor off the eastern beaches?
No issue or axe to grind from me just genuine boat-y curiosity?
