Arrived at the Q-dock in Opua at 9.00 AM NZ time on Sunday morning. The last few days have been perfect sailing in moderate SW and then W winds.
It has been a good trip - 8.8 days, 1215 nm, moving average 5.7 kts, used less than 20L of fuel. Not bad for a small boat with just 2 crew!

Welcome back to NZ. Sounds like you had a good passage.
