Anchored in Islington Bay, off Motutapu Island in the Hauraki Gulf
Spending the South Pacific cyclone season in New Zealand
Spent two nights tucked in between Motutapu and Rangitoto Islands to sit out the passage of a trough/front last night. Now the wind starts to shift to the south (our only exposed direction) and we will move to the NE side of Motuihe this morning. It's been a while since we had rain like this - probaby a welcome change for the Auckland area where it hasn't really rained since Christmas.
