Well it wasn't a bad run, apart from the Norwest Gale that damn near turned my boat around a couple of times . Sorry I can't post a picture of the water blowing off the top of the Waitaki dam as my attempt to take pics and control the boat didn't pay off. I didn't hear any stories about pushing, but  there were a couple of boats with crappy batteries, and one without enough fuel.
12 boats signed in at Bells Pond, and I had conformation of some coming late. Some others launched at SH1, and made a long trip of it.
