Musket Cove

After a pleasant night at anchor and a morning swim we left after lunch for Musket Cove. Short trip through the islands. Unfortunately two of the new crew had suffered a wee bit so a more sheltered location was needed.

Entrance to the Marina after threading through the moored fleet outside. You can see a few masts above the trees.  Follow that boat!

Once again the Kapowai magic does the trick and we are an easy walk to the Musket Cove Yacht Club Bar.

Its a lovely spot, sand deck, great conversations with both other boaties and visitors from the various resorts, cold beer and pizzas delivered. We had a chat with a fellow kiwi couple who has been coming every winter since 1986.

From my point of view the crew were never that far away.

They also had BBQs so you could cook your own or with a bit of planning they would provide the food.

You can get a lifetime membership to the Musket Cove Yacht Club if you sail there from a foreign port, we joined.

The beach next door. At low tide you could walk across this bay.

We spent two nights there and enjoyed the visit.
