      The sun dropped lower on the horizon casting a golden glow on Orca as we sailed South, to the North behind us the dark band of cloud that went all the way to the sea. Finally we were out of the weather system that we had battled through for what seemed an eternity. At 130nm we were nearly there, and in calm sea conditions, then I saw them. As the sun meets the horizon there they were in the distance with the setting sun behind them, to the Northwest, the "Three Kings Islands" ...

      We laughed all the way back to the north island with a great Kiwi Experience driver named Diddles, who also happened to be a great friend of Team Crisp! First stop Wellington, we checked into the YHA and even got a free cheeky upgrade to a private room! Cooking dinner that night and in walks in a familiar face, it was only bloody Devon our Persian German friend from Queens-town! Devon joined us for dinner and the following night joined us for our date night!! We had ...
