A westerly gale has dominated these last few days, forcing us into hiding, and limiting our communication with the outside world. Despite this, it has been warm and sunny which makes things so much more pleasant.
Our last few days in the Furneaux Group have been our idea of perfect cruising: warm, sunny weather, short brisk sails, beautiful anchorages with a mix of visiting an old favourite at Key Island Bay and discovering two new ones on Clarke Island: Rebecca and Moriarty Bays.
We crossed Banks Strait yesterday, a stretch of sea that can be nasty! We are now in the Furneaux Group.
