The moment I turn my back - site was down

Take a few days off and what happens? A database glitch takes out the site. My apologies for this and thanks to those people who emailed me.

Where is the Outer Gulf?

Have you ever listened to the Recreational Marine Forecast for Auckland and the forecast goes something like Southwest 10 knots but 15 knots in the Outer Gulf and your thinking to yourself, I sure could use those extra 5 knots so where exactly does the the Outer Gulf start. Well I put that question to Bob McDavitt, MetService Weather Ambassador and the answer is...

The outer Gulf area is defined in the Nautical Almanic and is east of a line from Capr Colville to Kawau. Basically there is extra wind expected in the zone that is open to the incoming Southeasterlies.
Thanks Bob but thats a fair hike from my local spot off Little Bucks. Next weeks trivia, what is a Nautical Almanic :)
