Chris , you may well be right about underestimating the weather.
What I'm finding hard to understand is how he ended up on Barrier. Those storms lashing NZ have been coming up from the south havn't they ? That would have presumably meant he was being blown away from NZ not onto the coast.
Don't misunderstand me, I'm merely confused as to how he ended up where he did. Even if he was hugging the coast before heading out to sea he was in a strange location and if he knew where he was, it was not a good time to have a lie down.
That said , tiredness can cause anyone to nod off unexpectantly, I know.
Anyway, I do feel sorry for the bloke.
