Reaching Marlborough Sounds
It was to be low tide at Tory Channel entrance at 1pm, so we set off bright and early and made good time before the northerly kicked in with about 10kms to go. We found some beautiful caves to paddle through and spent some time just enjoying our day. We timed our arrival to perfection, as the entrance was as flat as a mill pond and we had no problems entering the channel and soon stopped for a well earned lunch break. We enjoyed making our way up the sounds with a strong wind now at our back and finished for the day at Ratimera DOC camp.
