                                    A half day’s sail will take you to the Abel Tasman National Park where you can anchor
                                    in any number of bays. The most popular overnight anchorages include Anchorage
                                    near Torrent Bay and Adele Island inside the Astrolabe Roadstead. There are several
                                    estuaries along the coastline, including Torrent Bay, Mosquito Bay and Frenchman’s
                                    Cove, where flat-bottomed boats or multi-hulls can enter at high tide and beach between
                                    tides. Allow around 6 - 7 hours sailing time from the Cut to Pitt Head (29 nm).
                                    The Abel Tasman National Park is the smallest national park in New Zealand. Its 22,350
                                    hectares extend along a beautiful coastline of sandy, bush-wrapped beaches between
                                    rocky headlands and stretches of estuary rich in bird life.
                                    The park buzzes with activity in summer but is a year-round attraction. In winter, frosty
                                    mornings usually give way to sunny, calm days and empty beaches.
