Racy photos

Good news - our injector pump has been rebuilt and bench-tested and all is well with it! All being well we'll have a properly-working engine tomorrow....

Meanwhile, Graham did another chase around the racing fleet in the dinghy with his camera. His last set of photos were well received by the Opua Cruising Club - 9 out of 12 pictures in this year's club calendar were his! Here are a few from tonight's race:

The start

Heading north towards the Bay of Islands

All crew on the wires

California Kiwi catches a gust
