No more than 25 and a few spots of rain up our river.

About the same here.  but the sea state is incredible . I’ve been watching that reef through the telescope . The waves are at least 5 metres with a 2 metre cross chop from the south . The spray when they break would be blowing at least 80ft up in the air

I know that reef well. Used to be good for snapper back in the day. If it's breaking then do not go boating. That's actually pretty surprising. 

Still good for snapper and the area was good for for several species of game fish just a month ago

That Matapouri shot is a rare one, reminds me of going to Pataua once in the 1980 summer where we just stood and watched too scared to get the boards off the VW. No one was out.

Interesting eddy in BOP, most likely lee effect from East Cape ranges

The weather station on White Island (near the west summit) is very sensitive to topographic affects. It often gives 'unusual' data.

Data from the BOP Regional Council wave bouy off Pukehina Beach for April 2021.  Max wave height a little over 4m on the 22nd.

Better data capture at Bowentown (similar max height);

Looks like more crap later this weekend. Just took a spin up the harbour to run the engine and tickle up the batteries and that's about it for the weekend. Baby sitting the rest of the weekend.

Or the start of a winter cruise 

I’m heading north Thursday, I think the Three Kings is as far as we are allowed at this point, hope we don’t get lost and end up 1000nm further north.
