Our fourth post in the Southern Whitsundays Series focuses on Thomas Island and our spectacular anchorage at Naked Lady Beach.
For our third post in the Southern Whitsundays Series, we take you to Goldsmith Island where we spent a few days waiting for the strong southerly to calm down and sunny conditions to return.
Our article “Down the track, how is the life afloat?” was published in the May edition of yachting magazine Cruising Helmsman.
Our next hop of about 12 miles among the Southern Whitsundays takes us to Brampton and Carlisle Islands where we stay for a few days, hike and snorkel.
The islands of the Southern Whitsundays are little frequented by yachties, other than as convenient stopovers on the way to somewhere else!

We are now in the southern part of the Whitsundays, and area just northeast of Mackay. This post retraces our sails northward from the Keppels. We have been out of internet coverage ever since, so forgive our silence!
It is still really windy, up to 30 knots during the day, the swell wraps around the headlands even at anchor, and there are rainy spells, but nothing stops us: we explore ashore, snorkel and the Keppels do not fail to spin their magic.
