Nov 4 - Let the organizing begin
We rented a small storage space from the Marina office and started off loading sails, canvas, and a whole lot of stuff we don't need aboard right now. This will make it easier to empty out lockers and get to areas we haven't really been into for a long while. In the afternoon there was a complementary "sausage sizzle," which is a grill set up to cook, in this case, sausages; it was sponsored by Cater Marine, one of the big chandleries around here. It was a good opportunity to meet other cruisers, and from there we went to listen to a guitar duo that played some nice music at the nearby Opua Cafe. We walked over to the Opua Cruising Club for dinner, and joined as visiting members ($40/year) to support the local kids sailing and take advantage of the amenities of the OCC.
