hi Josh, after being battered by a big storm for 3 days and more headwind to go south and another low to ride out before arriving to Nelson, Dave and his crew have now decided to head to Opua for some rest. so you can catch up after all, and in case you would like a ride to Nelson, Dave would be stoked to have you on board. I hope you get good winds and a good passage, stay safe, cheers Isabelle
