We leave Townsville and in two big hops get back to Hayman Island in the Whitsundays. Calm weather ahead, so off to the Outer Reef again before more progress south.
Despite the crowds we had three lovely days at Magnetic Island, exploring its beautiful bays, stretching our legs and catching up with friends.
Our dawdle to new territory for us, from the Whitsundays to Magnetic Island, is the start of new adventures.
Anchor winch problems delay our departure for Far North Queensland by two days, but allow us to catch up with our friends on Storm Boy!
