Rested in Newcastle

Well, we did cross the Tasman back to Aus, albeit arriving in Newcastle, 260nm north of the intended destination of Eden.

The Last Leg

We’re on our way!  We left Newcastle at about 3pm on Wed., once the SE wind had eased, and motor-sailed through the night.

Hopping Along Currents

From Jervis Bay to Eden, hug the coast to avoid the slight north going current. But from Eden to Tasmania there are eddies begging to be used.

Back in Tassie!

It was a long, but easy ride down from Jervis Bay to Bryan’s Corner on Frecyinet Peninsula.  Seventy-five hours of mostly motor-sailing, through easy seas with light or no winds. 

3829 Nautical Miles

One should always have paper charts. We went one step further, 3D charts ie a globe.

Cruising in the Baltic

Warning - this post is a long one! I decided to tell the whole story of our trip to Denmark in one post.

Greeting the Golden Globe Race

We’ve been following the GGR for over a year on their facebook page and website.  This solo round the world race aims to recreate the conditions of the original GGR in 1968.  There are only two “gates” in the race that the entrants have to sail through – one in the Canary Islands and one just south of Hobart.

Christmas 2018

After one or two false starts we set off from Kettering on Saturday, the 22nd Dec.  It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed a gentle motor-sail across Storm Bay.
