Woke up to a clear, cold overcast day, but it soon turned to sunshine again. I wonder when we will pay for all this beautiful weather? I didn’t get down to Victoria today but had a walk around Sidney by the sea instead, not quite the same as Victoria but an interesting place anyway.
The New Zealand Radio callsign and MMSI number came through today. What a great service from the guys at Callsigns NZ, thank you. Truce currently has Canadian registry and this need to be deregistered before I can start the process for New Zealand registry on the small ship register. Monday tomorrow and a start to the working week. I hope to get some more bits n bobs sorted out tomorrow.
The provisioning is all but finished, just some fresh fruit and veg to load before I depart. The only critical item missing is long life milk, I can’t seem to find it locally. I find this unbelievable as there is a bewildering display of milk types on display at the supermarket. The nearest to normal milk I have found is called Homo Milk – which I find a little queer. I will keep asking around but so far
I get only blank looks from the shop assistants.
