I’d love to visit and sail in New Zealand someday and I occasionally exchange emails back and forth with a couple friends living in that southern hemisphere country. One friend sent me a link on Friday after a strong storm hit Wellington with 140kmh (87mph) winds. They saw some damage throughout the city and it was no doubt a challenging time for those with boats moor in the area (photo above). As the weather forecaster comments, “it’s a mucky weekend however you want to slice it.”
