Run: 29.8nm (53.9km)
Weather: TWS 15 TWD 260T

Anchored off Slipper Island (just past Shoe Is of course). Good sail here which especially nice as the forecast was much light winds. No fish landed but hooked something big briefly. It broke our big bungee, ripped off the beefy double hook, snapped one barb of the treble hook and broke the others. Even snapped off the dive fin off the front of the Halco lure.

Are you guys headed our way in Tauranga? Let me know if you need anything like arrangements with the marina. Rich and Cyndi

Moved out of Whangoroa to Stephenson Is to make water (The water in Whangoroa looks like a mud puddle after all this rain).

Spearfishing scheduled for the afternoon.

Hello Fluenta crew, We saw your boat at the marina at Opua one day when visiting Millennium Spirit who were next to you, but you weren't home. If you are ever over on the west side of Northland come and visit us in Rawene. We are loving land life while poor Navire is languishing on a mooring at Matauwhi Bay near Russell. Cheers Janet 0211692494
