Land Ho !

It is Nigel who won the double ration of rum (he opted for a glass of
water) when he was the first to sight the Three Kings. At that point we
were motoring, but as soon as Cape Reinga came into sight, the weather
changed for the better altought some heavy rain came through today after
lunch. Otherwise, we are now running with just the genoa on the pole and
doing 5 to 6 knots nicely towards Marsden Point. Feels like a week-end
outing. I expect to enter the Marsden Point marina between 7 and 9
tomorrow morning, do our formalities and get to the Whangarei marina
early afternoon. Everybody is looking forward to a nice hot shower and a
full night sleep.
