    How about a SF-Yokohama 1-2? :-)

    I'm a sucker for sweet lines. Here is a view of the 1975 Bruce Farr 38 TIMBER WOLF, a cousin of SWEET OKOLE. TIMBER WOLF, built in Santa Cruz by C&B, was recently hauled at SF Boatworks for her triannual bottom job.

    And here is TIMBER WOLF having just completed a double-handed, dip pole gybe in 20 knots. Dave Hodges is one of the few skippers I know who can pull this off both single and double handed. Respect. (Note the spreader patches.)

    Frank, proprietor of Grady's Market, neighbor to CBC, has laid in a new supply of Marianne's Macapuno icecream. Enough said.

    For a chance at a bowl of Macapuno with fresh peaches, who or what was first to land in New Zealand? (Although all are real, only one is correct)

    1. Abel Tasman.

    2. The cat Trim, who intrepidly swam ashore from Mathew Flinder's pinnace.

    3. Capt. James Cook (British) and Capt. Jean-François-Marie de Surville (French), simultaneously (same day), amazingly neither aware of the other's presence.

    4. A Hawaiian cat of vaka moana lineage.

    5. Captain D'arcy Whiting, searching waters and beaches east of the North Island of New Zealand for his missing son and crew, lost at sea.

    6. Te Reinga, at the collision of two oceans.

    My deduction is Abel Tasman.

    Although cats may have been aboard ancestral canoes, the first documented cat was on Captain Cook ship.

    Since replies are slow coming, i might have a stab. Do you mean the first European to land......?

    Sorry, Ants. It was not Abel Tasman, although he was the first Euro to "discover" (sight) New Zealand in 1642. Tasman and crew did not land, but were repelled by locals in a tense encounter at Murderer's Bay.

    A hint might be the original question reads "who or what was first to land in New Zealand"? Please feel free to guess again.

    I guess everyone must be busy sailing so the land bound folks like me can guess some more.

    Next choice is 3, with James Cook. Cook was acknowledged as introducing cats to NZ - sorry to native bird populations. Cook would have considered cats to protect his food stores from rodents.

    The polynesian travelers were way earlier than Cook, but references show them landing on the larger islands. It is hard to sort out if rodents and cats were part of the early island travelers life.

    The next pair of wildfires are having a smoke impact on the kern river valley residents, without evacuations and imminent property loss. The Windy fire is the closest. It is burning through an area that had significant dead trees (30-50 percent by my visual guess) and nesr the Trail of 100 Giants. The smoke plumes are spectacular, but significant fire losses are ongoing.

    Hi Ants,
    Sorry to hear of the smoke impact on the Kern River Valley from active fires. They had good rain yesterday at Inverness at Tomales Bay. But doubt it will reach your area. News is fire crews are wrapping bases of giant sequoia with aluminum, fireproof blankets to help protect those precious trees.

    You are correct that Capt. Cook did land in New Zealand in 1769. Locals thought his ship, ENDEAVOUR, was an enormous bird sailing into their bay, near what is now Gisborne. And yes, ENDEAVOUR likely did carry cats. But no definitive evidence they made it ashore.

    Sorry, but answer #3, Cook and de Surville, are not who landed first in New Zealand. Yes, likely many of our unusual suspects are off sailing. Although Jackie is in Colorado Springs. Your presence acknowledged and appreciated. I'm guessing you are indoors in the smoke. Feel free to guess again. We are gonna get this thing.
