We're back!
Departed Brisbane three weeks ago today after replacing the engine and getting over terrible coughs.
We had a good trip up to Wide Bay Bar but had to motor all the way due to lack off wind - at least the bar was flat as a tack. Hid behind Big Woody Island for a strong SW change for a couple of days then had a great sail to Bundaberg where we overnighted.
Next day another good sail to Pancake creek then on to Great Keppel Island for another night and then on to Island Head Creek and finally another day sail to Middle Percy Island where the wind left us for a couple of days so we had a good rest.
In light winds and fog patches we sailed to Digby Island then the following day on to Scawfell Island. Finally, two weeks after departing we sailed from Scawfell to Airlie Beach in the Whitsundays. Next day was laundry, shopping for food and refilling with fresh water - a busy day!
Then we sailed the following day around to Gloucester Island for the Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club Rendevous. This has finished now and we are relaxing for a few days and heading out to the Whitsundays to carry on cruising. (Hopefully will now have more time to fill in the Blog!)
