On the weekend we spent a very enjoyable sunny Sunday afternoon up at Moturekareka. While there I got chance for a little air time over the wreck of the Rewa and around the island.

 

Thought I'd share the results:

This is a superb boat book that links to the Rewa and then spins out into one of the most enjoyable nautical yarns I’ve ever read. Anyone who’s not read it - get it!

You can judge a person by how much they help someone who can do nothing for them in return.

Awesome video - I talked to you on the beach just as you were setting up. Cool to see our yacht at anchor. It was an amazing weekend to be on the water and we had a lovely night parked in the bay. Thanks for sharing Neil.

Yes it was a stunner weekend indeed. We were at Motutara and I do remember wondering what the view would be like from up there so thanks for sharing.

And yes a great book. Still have a dusty old copy sitting in the boat’s library.

Cheers

The book was reprinted a couple of years ago for the Ngataki launching after a refit, get yerself a copy at boat books on westhaven drive. ( no connection).

 If you can get onto  E pier , Ngataki is  3/4 of the way along at the moment next to Riada 2.
