Wind on Saturday

It was  a good call to cancel our cruise on Saturday.

The gusty winds lasted until Saturday evening,  and did NOT start easing until after 4pm Saturday— too late for us




In fact there was one very nasty squall that gave gusts to over 60 knots at Tiritiri at around 2pm Saturday – NOT what we would wish on anyone!


Even RNZYS cancelled the first race of the Commanders Cup on their “opening day”.
