Hi Kanga I am in Wellington but haven't decided which one I am going to do either Tauranga, Rotorua, Taupo or Auckland - do you recommend any of them? Trying to pursuade a mate to do it with me but got no takers yet.
I really like the pirate philosophy so I think I will keep hanging out of the forums and see how I go
Thanks guys this is of great help. Just been out for another open water swim, amazing conditions and weather - apart from the Tsunami warning which I later found out about - all good but maybe lesson learnt for next time.
