We're leaving on thurs night for a month or as close to it as we can get. Its a trip North this year hopefully bypassing the Bay of Islands for the early (rush) part of the season and spending more time on the coast either north or south.
That general plan might get hexed a bit by the strategic forecast of the la Nina weather pattern, which typically means North easters and lots of good weather plus lots of bad weather( due to warmer water temps), so it should be fun but we might be forced into anchoring up with 100 boats in the bay yet. I'll update this thread periodically when we get coverage .
Anyway, merry christmas you wbf people, its been a pleasure again to have another year of your insights and company in this little virtual world.. bring on 2011.
