|Day 35 - Friday 31.11.10|
Tim woke to witness a large search & rescue operation looking for 3 boaties missing during the night....they were located ok, but it put the willies up Tim for a while.
Tim delayed his start until he was sure of the weather, & then set out for a marathon effort. After 10 hours of paddling without a break, he completed the crossing to Fighting Bay & then down to Rarangi Beach. The trip should have been a lot quicker, but one of the rudder cables malfunctioned & Tim had to use his paddle for steering as well as using it for forward momentum.
