Let’s go fly a kite!

By | November 13, 2016

Today was our last sail!  Mooloolaba to Moreton Bay with Chances (Port Stephens) and Pas de Chat (Port Macquarie). We have really enjoyed cruising with our new friends – Gary and Annie, and Jim and Jan.  I’m sure we will see them again!

66 nautical miles.  Top speed 12.6k (Neville says the instruments don’t lie!).  Departure 4.15 am (it’s daylight at this ungodly hour here in Qld).  Arrival 3.20pm.

A long day, but a good one!  And we beat the storm.

We had flat seas, a steady 10-15 knots and northerlies.  So … the spinnaker was up!  We had only used it one other time, so we were chuffed.

8 hours of kite flying!
