  1. PredictWind now has PredictCurrent, but it will cost you a few hundred bucks. https://www.predictwind.com/predictcurrent
  2. Also AES (Auckland Engineering Supplies) at Westhaven sell it. They can cut you off a length.
  3. Yes, you should still go if you want to. Fitzroy is the main place that people head for. You could spend a week or more inside anchoring in a different bay each night. There are some people who don't go anywhere else as their wives need millpond conditions to get to sleep. However I find it a bit claustrophobic and usually prefer Broken Islands to Whangaparapara which are now closed. Plus there is still Abercrombie (explore the camp at the head of Karaka bay) and Katherine bay on the west (good fishing and anchorage behind the mussel farm). If the swell isn't too high you can still go up round

    Sailing: SailGP pulls out of Auckland event "However, the unavailability of Wynyard Point land as a spectator facility proved to be a barrier to holding the event in Auckland," Hill said. Moving to Christchuch instead. https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/sport/2023/11/sailgp-pulls-out-of-auckland-event.html
  6. Why not year round? What will it be used for for the other 6 months?
  7. Caulerpa's spread has some Aotea Great Barrier locals throwing in the towel Some residents want the island closed entirely to visiting boaties while others say the battle is already lost and restrictions are pointless. But with the seaweed continuing to spread and the restrictions - known as Controlled Area Notices, or CANs - due to expire at the end of the month, islanders and biosecurity officials have little time to decide their next steps. A more likely path, depending on the outcome of this week's hui, is to renew and possibly expand the CANs currently in force at Okupu Bay
  8. On the plus side, that is the best article I have read on what is happening with Caulerpa. Well done, the Herald!
  9. You can't really see all the Pacific islands in that photo.
  10. Controversial Kennedy Point marina on Waiheke Island opens today The marina had 181 berths of which 173 were sold, he said. Despite being sold, many berths would be available for casual rent because their owners wouldn’t have boats there immediately or continuously, he said. Berths sell for around $180,000 to $400,000 and the marina is the first on the island. “Our new system operates like a hotel management system, so people can reserve berths to rent, a bit like Airbnb for boats,” Littlejohn said. Prices vary on the berth length and season. For a 6m trailer boat or jetski, pe
  11. Hauraki Gulf rescue: Yachtsmen pull hypothermic fisherman from water after kayak flips A hypothermic fisherman who flipped out of his kayak and was tangled in gear was lucky to be discovered by passing yachtsmen and plucked from the Hauraki Gulf.
