Boating NZ : FREE TO READ April 2014
36 Boating New Zealand April 2014 scared of climbing that vertical wall and falling over backwards. I took the wave at an angle. I came unstuck. The cavalry was roaring to my rescue but I was determined to be back onboard before it arrived. In my helmet and bulky lifejacket, it was an inelegant swim to Pearl’s pull-down step. I tried to leap aboard like Zorro. “Don’t worry, there’s not another wave coming,” said a helmet who turned out to be Craig. Good, because I was struggling to reconnect the kill cord. But I laughed my butt off for the next 20 miles – and off Farewell Spit I took a photo of my Raymarine Dragonfly chartplotter to prove that I’d dared to go where I’d never dared to go before. What really worried me was Ewegenie, an inflatable sheep awarded every evening by a clown called Damien for doing Day one, prior to launching at Whanganui Inlet. The PWCs were covered in dust after the long trip from Takaka. water and cabin heating Talk to us about sales service and installation on your vessel.
