Sail from Island Head to Hunter Island
We had another fabulous sail today. In 15 to 20 kts of wind E/SE. Coming out of Island Head was very confused seas. Once away from the Cape we started to get back into some more of the swells instead of wave chop. We sailed under full sail and average nearly 7 kts. We were anchored at Hunter by 13:30. WInds still strong and have been for the last week. Tomorrow we will move on to Curlew Island, and then into Mackay on Monday. There is another strong SW change on its way and should be here by Tuesday. Today was nice and warm day, but it is expected to get colder again with the SW change.
