Crew - Stu, Graciela, Geoff

Another perfect sailing day in Wellington Harbour. Departed 1252 hrs and sailed across to Ward Island with full Mainsail and No. 3 Jib. Graciela on helm. 12 knot breezes as we crossed Evans Bay and across the channel to Ward Island. Speed up to 6 kts as measured by tracker. 

Stu caught a good sized Kahawai but decided to let it go. Put the anchor down on leeward side of Ward Is and had lunch. Stu helmed back to Wellington arriving at 1618 hrs.

The tracker stopped half way across to Ward Island when laptop decided to install a Windows 10 update!
