Bland Bay to Moturua Island

You can track our boat on the Internet at the link above. What a gorgeous sunrise to start the day.
Today we actually got to sail. We had a nice sail for a few hours without the motor and the boat performed beautifully despite her 35 gross tonnage.
We passed the hole in the rock which from far away doesn't look very big but if you look closely at the photo, you can see a big tourist boat in the hole.
We trolled a fishing lure again today without luck so we tried fishing at our anchorage and managed to hook some “pannies” for dinner.
Tomorrow we are heading into Opua to the marina there to get ready to push off for the islands early next week. So far all the systems on board have worked well on this shakedown cruise and everyone is happy and doing well. We had a little glich today when we forgot to wind in the fishing line when anchoring so the lure got caught around the prop. I ended up donning my shorty wetsuit and dived into the water to cut it off. Brrr! I can't wait to get to the tropics.
