NZ -> New Caledonia preparations

June 9, 2010: today we have a short respite between low pressure systems, so we sailed just out of the Bay of Islands and then beat back in for a bit of sail testing. We have a much-upgraded Reef-Rite boom furler thanks to Kevin Graham, a new mainsail from Chris McMaster at Doyle Sails NZ, all new standing rigging from Garry Hassal at Hall Spars NZ.

Tonight we are planning to anchor in the inner islands at Orokawa Bay to shelter from the next blow out of the Northwest.
