Sailing Northland's East Coast

As Most People who read this blog know, I'm crazy mad about sailing. So just after new year when my I was asked to come on a cruising trip from Whangarei to The Bay of Islands there was only ever going to be one answer.
With Northland notoriously great weather we set off with a 15 knot south easterly wind and spent the night in Bland bay.
We also managed to hook 5 bonitos (only keeping one) and a sting ray which meant we had to cut the line. It was quite disappointing as I was looking forward to a nice feed of Kahawai.
All went according to plan except for our missing Mooring in Opua.
