Cruising can be a waiting game. You wait for the heavy rain to stop, the dangerous weather systems to pass, the contrary breeze to turn. We spent two weeks in Jervis Bay, waiting for acceptable conditions to return. What do we do when we are boat bound to keep our sanity?
Another month, another bout of severe weather with a trail of destruction turning thousands of people into climate change refugees. These are very worrying times. Is this our future?
“Hide-dash-hide”seems to be our rhythm these days! After our epic sail to Jervis Bay and a rest day while a weak southerly change passed, we did a dash to Moruya, 65 nautical miles further south when the northerly returned – only just for a day, mind you!
