NELSON HARBOUR RUN

fZeiDZZ3eyH1QhaZYrRgxXAuNPijM9KwiXDRubRGOur April run was a pleasant cruise around Nelson Harbour.  Six boats and 13 crew were ably led by our Nelson members.  T_-GYbj_5OZbrQBhZaW2k1olokrZNWs8FPlTeff3The weather was perfect for mucking around in small boats, warm and calm.  We got away as planned, as timing was essential for the tide, and cruised the Boulder Bank looking at the baches and marvelling at an efoil surfboard, before heading up the river to the busy part of the city.  The small flotilla caused quite a OJGugi-V-6xX9gZhB1V_hAckFclYuM_CKsTvtl1Pbit of interest with the Saturday morning walkers and café patrons. Unfortunately we were unable to get under the Collingwood Street bridge due to maintenance and low hanging scaffolding. It was then an easy run out with the tide to a sheltered landing just inside the harbour entrance for lunch.  The trip continued outside the harbour around Haulashore 4zCuOv8oghFI6boePQBGcGQYN15s7Z4t_Qjq6HlzIsland.  On the way back to the ramp we had a close up view of ships loading/unloading at the wharves.  No chance to get anywhere near them nowadays due to port security.  After retrieving the boats we finished a most enjoyable day with a group barbeque.

Thank you to our Nelson members for a great day out.
