Happy Easter!

We've had the loveliest Easter weekend with Shona and Malcolm Thomas aboard. The weather has been superb, we had some lovely sailing in the Bay of Islands, climbed a couple of (smallish) hills, swum in clear waters and seen dolphins. Plenty of good food and drink in great company, what could be better?

Happy Hikers (sorry, Trampers, as they are known here) 
Close reaching with the Parasailor - Shona enjoyed the challenging steering as the wind increased
