Raglan Charters

Islay Mist II
25 August and a trip to the west coast port of Raglan to swing the compass on the Islay Mist II. Working out of Raglan involves crossing a sand bar into the Tasman Sea and can be a trial at times so for smaller vessels it is a calm weather exercise. Luckily the compass swing was done in the harbour even though it was a bit breezy. Cargo ships used to work this port but no more and the old cement silo has been converted into living accomodation.
