An idyllic day for ice creams and the start of the third leg of the RNI. Very light winds were spurred on by the sea breeze making for a good but slowish start by the fleet and a small park up in Kau Bay. Blink unfurled her code 0 and started to pick off the fleet in very light winds being just behind Bushido who got away in clear air a little sooner.
Several Wellington support boats followed the fleet to the heads wishing the fleet fair winds and safe journeys.
A big thank you to Dave and Anna Roberts for taking out the good ship Jacqueline. Jacqueline used to be owned by the builder of Blink, Mr Craig Partridge.
