En Zed

We made it into Opua, Bay of Islands, New Zealand or as they say it En Zed, last night at around midnight. Cleared customs this morning with the most complete quarantine inspection we’ve ever had. The inspectors could barely lift the bag that they confiscated all our meats, honey,, and various other evil things. It is the NZ War Against Meat Products.

We finally got to crack off the wind a bit for the last 35 miles. Other than that it was close hauled all the way from Tonga.  More latter, maybe even some pics. I need a hot shower and a beer.
