Our first article for 2019 was published in the January 2019 issue of Cruising Helmsman! What a cracking way to start the new year! This relates to a few of our Outer Reef escapades and our learnings about the ideal conditions for hassle free anchoring and snorkeling at the reef.
After a month in the Whitsundays, we are riding the first of the Northerlies south!
After nearly a week of strong winds, we had a reprieve and a choice to make: climb the Cairn or head out to the outer reef. Gee that’s a bit tough… the reef won of course!
It is always exciting when you do something new and an Outer Reef escapade to Hook and Bait Reefs rates high in our book. In fact this was one of our bucket list items while in this region.
