Currently anchored just off Waiheke island. Sadly due to poor weather no sailing has been done today. Strong winds and currents caused the anchor to drag so a big team effort needed to raise and reset the anchor again. Although the weather is poor, spirits are high while we wait for the glorious weather to return.
The Captain and Mate, Fliss, took full advantage of the afternoon at anchor to educate us on their specialties, which was interesting to know.
The cadets are all helping to keep us entertained by teaching us how to splice a rope resulting in some successes and a few “interesting” attempts. Some snapper have been caught and the ship has settled into taking shelter.
Hoping for some luck with the wind and looking forward to setting sail tomorrow.
