After a quiet night at anchor on the East side of Ponui Island , we steam across the Firth of Thames to check out Coromandel, followed by a sail across to Waiheke Island with deck games under sail and a tack and stow in the rain and now we lie at anchor, climbing the rig to challenge and enjoy ourselves. The adventure continues.
