Well what a day we are having, left anchorage at dawn for the Poor Knights and a dive at Nursery Cove and into Rikoriko cave. Big smiles and shouts of delight from the divers, hard to get out of the water with bombs and rope swing while drifting 50 metres off the steep limestone cliffs, stunning.

Lunch on the go back to Tutukaka and a walk ashore to the lighthouse to break the day up before taking the good weather and heading north to anchor in Mimiwhangata for the night, a hearty meal and some classwork to finish the working day before the guitars, chess board and cards appear to get everyone ready for a sleep.2
