    [QUOTE=auscruisertom;6075652]Setting sail has always represented more than just the destination, a big part has always been meeting new people combined with exiting experiences such destinations can provide.
    Anchoring near SeaWorld at bums bay highlighted that once more meeting up with Mike Smith on Edythe an immaculately kept H28 build in Auckland that Mike has been sailing for 40 years. /Quote/

    Here is Mike’s 1967 Kauri built H28 rigged completely with Dyneema riggin including the fore stays and tufnol dead eyes.

    . “Edythe” also features a very nicely DIY engineered trim tab Windvane working of the vessels main rudder that Mike built.

    Had a great sail to Southport in light conditions while testing out Wee Barkie’s new gaff rig.

    Since our new extended Queensland border closure is coming into effect at midnight I seized the opportunity to be able to use WB rather than sitting on a mooring that I may not be able to get to.
