As we push closer and closer there is always the nagging feeling that the mighty Pacific is not quite finished with you yet.

Ahoy there! Need any assistance?

The day was progressing with choppy but favourable conditions. A quiet and overcast morning with Josh and Si at the oars and Arron and Darren getting some well-deserved rest.
