No position sent.

Arrived in tranquil Opua at 10pm last night. Now awaiting clearance.

Congratulations on a fine passage! Can't wait to hear the details. We'll be back in Opua on Friday and hope to catch up with you then- Martin & Lexi SV Pau Hana

Hi Lexi and Martin, looking forward to see you friday! We are anchored out, but should be around the Marina on Friday anyway since we don´t want to miss the sailmakers workshop and get-together Claudia and Jürgen
