A quick update - work is extremely busy, as UC classes started on Monday 18th, and we have to sort out lots of last minute panics with online courses. It's less frantic than previous years, though, which is a good thing.
There's still time for the Sunday sail, though, and we had a beauty yesterday - 10-12 knots of breeze, sunshine, and lots of other boats out - we counted 34 sailing boats on Lyttelton Harbour at about 2pm. I seem to be a bit reluctant to bike to work the next day, preferring to give my creaks and groans a day of rest.
Next week we're going to Kaikoura for more fun on the water; we have booked a sea kayak trip on Saturday afternoon. It will be nice to have look around the area, too - it's been ages since we spent any time there.
