Hi folks this blog side is becoming more of a log of Crusoe, we welcome any topics that may be interesting.
Well we never were too enthused with crowds of yachties and the Whitsundays have no shortage of them. We spent a night in Cid Harbour and received a perfect weather forecast for proceeding north, so we made a command decision on the spot to continue to Magnetic Island, north around 130 nm. So we headed out to 15-18 kt SSE wind that saw us sitting on a comfortable 6kt average… until around 2am when we were confronted head on with an opposing tide that slowed us to about 4.5-5kt. However we were treated to what the news is reporting as the “super moon” rise that was simultaneous with the sun set, and it was during perfect sailing conditions on a perfect night so we were happy with our decision to head north.
The arrival into Magnetic was nice and uneventful and it was nice to drop the dingy in the water and go ashore.
We like to keep our family and friends up to date with our progress, but we welcome all visitors and comments.
