Strong head winds hamper our progress.

Made an early start on Saturday which started with a 4 metre swell from the SW, but no wind. By mid morning a strong wind from the NE was making progress very slow. Rounding the headland to Moeraki was very difficult and we were glad to finally reach the Moeraki camping ground and relax in a hot shower, etc.
To-day we once again paddled into strong NE winds. We had to call it quits at All Day Bay around mid afternoon due to rough seas. Forecast for Monday is for SW winds in the morning, so we're planning for an early start to get as far as possible up the coast before the NE winds kick in again.
