To be honest we just dropped in here to get some groceries, meet a hairdresser appointment and to do the eternal bug of sailing, the laundry…..
Here we are a week later, marina bound, with cabin fever wanting to slash our wrists!
On it goes, this never-ending high pressure ridge, generating twenty-five to thirty knot winds SE , seemingly endlessly…………..
We set off today to make our way acrosss the passage, just trying to get a different view for our guest Xavier, who must be so bored by now with the last four days of marina living.
A mere 2 nm into the short 12nm passage we abandoned and returned to our marina berth. 35 knots over the bow before we left the comfort zone of Airlie Bay , no chance to even get belted by the usual bullets as we passed Pioneer Rock!
