5am on the water. Stunning sunrise. Bloody cold start! Support team needed a rest and a warm up after my launch. Paddled on smooth calm sea all the way to a calm tranquil beach landing at Whangamata .
Coffee, sunshine and a rest after a 25 km paddle. Chat to some other campervan owners then back to the water for a trip to Waihi beach. Beautiful coastline, lots of caves and fun areas to paddle. Will come back again for sure.
Met by a great school friend on their boat to escort me into the beach, thanks Jackie Wenham and Lockie, so nice to see your smiling faces.
Coffee, a drive around and sight seeing, what an amazing afternoon.
Thanks again to all
