We awoke at 0700 hours in Whangamumu Harbour to an overcast, windy morning. Laani was first to enjoy the refreshing mineral spa followed closely by everyone else. Our new trainees quickly completed their chores to enjoy one of Wayne’s hearty breakfasts. After dishes were done we gathered in the saloon to fill our heads with knowledge on chartwork and navigation. With all the paperwork completed it was time to go and explore the Whangamumu Whaling Station and waterfall.

We returned and readied the ship for a rough sail down to Whangaruru Harbour where we are staying for the night. Goodnight.
