Around in Huruhi - there was a bit of a shift to SW for a while but then went back to NW. Are you getting much of a role in there?

Nope... It died last night around 12pm.

Sounds like Bon Accord is very full. 

Nope, I'm here now, about 1/4 full maybe. Everyone is tucked up along the south side though. Been a little surprised how quiet over the last few days. Max what I would call half full. Full being NY eve rammed full (as in you have to struggle to find space to park up harbour of the yacht club.

Been thinking about a nice burger and fries for a couple of days now. So this afternoon we cruised into Bon Accord, but no. Kitchen closes at 7pm. Be warned. 

They are struggling with lack of staff, currently family are helping out.

Think I must have seen you turn around at the cone barrier disappointed.  I got in from Barrier with 30mins to spare to drop the hook and get a steak!

BOI wasn't super packed. Headed up boxing day. Only a couple of windy(ish) nights. Snorkeling at Deep Water Cove was a highlight. 

Currently motoring solo off Whangaruru straight into Southerly... waiting for the Easterly which I can see approaching. Might get a bit breezy!

BP advised that the fishing was good in Hooks so after slowly heading out into the Gulf from the islands of Coro the sea breeze came in last Tuesday and we tacked back to lay Hooks , broke my record line in water 30 seconds and we had dinner very efficient and all whilst still under sail!

No rain at all for us had to hose boat when we got home, a good relaxed not go far cruise where i never put on more than a T shirt.

Little Palm beach then?

I was at Moturekareka Island for a short time (and should have stayed longer) just before NY eve and it looked like Pysche and crew/family had a top spot. Are you allowed to camp on the island or was that just a daytime set up. We have 7 on board including 3 young ones and left to go to Bon Accord which was windy and wavy, ended up near Algies Bay (Goldsworthy - which was cold, windy but less crowded) for the night. I was advised that Moturekareka is only a day stop usually but that is if it goes a bit west I suppose.
