A quiet week for us, and everyone else except harbour fishers, as the Westerly winds were pretty unrelenting all week, meaning all trips postponed until it eases a bit. The El Nino effect generally means nice weather but lots of sea breezes, we've seen more rain than blue skies, so hopefully we'll get them along with less wind.

The Met service and NIWAs predictions about coming weather patterns aren't always that spot on, so it'll be interesting to see what does eventuate in the next few weeks. As an optimist, I'm hoping for a late, but long settled summer, plenty of fish, and the Astrolabe exclusion zone to be reduced or removed. That would be nice.

Daylight Saving:
Please note that tide times have been corrected for daylight saving.
