Kia Ora Whanau.
The ship is alive with noise, good signs. We had a lovely and somewhat hardcore day one. We went for a proper sail around to Omakiwi, our spot for the night. We were flying along at 8 knots at one stage, it was epic. Once at anchor we learned a few things about the ship, and then rounded out the day with some land time, a wee hikoi over to a hidden beach for sunset. We are all super excited for the week ahead, bring on the mission.
Ma te wa.
