Looks like they have enough wind around NZ for a good sail. Queensland is a bit timid don't you think? :-)

Perhaps such a sail would bring you closer to heaven. You would have to ask the kiwis about that.
And as for 15C, overcast and raining -that is summer weather out here next to cape disappointment. Yeehaaa! Lets go sailing!
