Yesterday, 13 of our students boarded the catamaran Whiskers for a private boat trip to Rangitoto Island – the volcano in the middle of Auckland Harbour. The sea was a deep green and as there was no wind, looked like a lake. Some of us dived off and swam in the cool water under the boat, while others fished or relaxed. On the way back to the city, we had the company of 50 racing boats, which looked amazing against the Auckland skyline.
