Yet another rescue
is underway in our back yard. A couple of Kiwi's have been dismasted and injured out in the Pacific on the way to thye Cook Islands
. They are beign battered by 14m(46ft)waves at the mo. A ship tired a rescue
, but it was too ruff. Another rescue vessel is under way, but it is 56hrs away. Another ruff front is on the way.
Actually the weather
down he has been different this year. The normal path to the Islands as been ravaged by storms this year. In NZ, we have had a very mild winter, almost no winter at all, but it has been very windy and we get the odd very cold snap come through. Infact, it is now our spring and we just got the most snow we have had all winter just last weekend. We measured wind
gusts of 63 knots in our Marina two weeks back. Hope the weather
smooths out soon.
