Good News!

While the wind and seas may not be big, I do think that they will be fun!

The Metservice are predicting that

A ridge of high pressure over the area moves eastwards from Saturday as a low approaches the country from the west. This low system moves across the South Island on Sunday, with strengthening northerlies. The low is expected to move away to the east and weaken on Monday, with an associated front slow-moving over the North Island.

Friday: Variable 5 knots, becoming northeast 10 knots tonight. Smooth sea becoming slight tonight. Mainly fine.
Saturday: Northeast 15 knots, rising to 20 knots in the afternoon. Slight sea becoming moderate in the afternoon. Mainly fine.
Sunday: Northerly rising to 25 knots in the evening. Rain developing late afternoon.

High tide at AUCKLAND
Time: 10:26pm Friday, 3.0m
Time: 10:41am Saturday, 2.9m

Which I think means that there should be some good runs on the east coast both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. In a perfect weekend I would squeeze in a Waiheke back to Devonport or town on Saturday and one down the North Shore Coastline on Sunday - maybe a sneaky Long Bay to Takapuna, and if the wind really gets up then look at doing a mission run from Shakespeare Bay back to Taka.

Either way, our regular Sunday afternoon session at Takapuna should be HEAPS of fun, especially as Jason is going to be looking after the gang this week. I am gutted I am going to miss it!
