Where Were You ?

Where were you?  I organized the welcome party & no one turns up 🙂


The CYA launch picnic cruise to Stillwater (Weiti) Camping Ground was cancelled yesterday due to low numbers & the threat of cyclone PAM.

Jason Prew & Nathan Herbert braved the forecast today & crossed the bar into the Waiti River – conditions were appalling on the return crossing (photo below), I understand a cup of Milo was spilled & Jason lost 1/2 a cream bun over the side. Huge post on the trip in a few days.


Seems a few of us are turning a little soft 🙂

Now if you need a boat or its time to upgrade – click the link below to view one of the smartest classics on the harbour –

  1. YEE HAA!!! THE BAROMETERS DROPPING LIKE A STONE!!!
    THERES NOTHING LIKE A GOOD STORM TO EXCITE THE SOUL!!!
    WE SURVIVED HAVANNAH PASSAGE WE CAN SURVIVE THIS!!
    Like Harold everything’s doubled up double checked and now for a retreat to the bomb shelter. Let you know how we go…
    PS. If the boats and yard survive we’ll have a celebratory regatta.

  2. Well, Cyclone Pam must have us all worried. (not the Whangateau one, she’s only Category 4). We went and put another spring on, doubled up the bow lines and generally trembled with apprehension. Then Jase rang to see if we would accompany him on his perilous enterprise. By then we were a bit spooked and had arranged to change our library books.
    Anyway, the wind is at last getting up right now and had better blow the bejeesus to justify our missing Jase’s and Nathan’s outstanding bravery of yesterday.
    Those terrifying images of the Weiti in great anger!!!!!

  3. Aw, Alan. No refreshments on pier and no bondes! Jeez man, ain’t I taught you anything? There just is a lot on this weekend: Pasifika Festival -maybe you should open a stall there. Eagles concert.
    I hope that there will be other posts that will guide you into organising the event to top them all!
