Lazy Saturday

A Lazy and Very Windy Saturday

After breakfast we ventured to the cockpit and got no further, it was nice to see the sky littered with kite surfers and one or two jet skiers braving the bumps. We had planned to go for a spuddle to Crab Island but after watching a hire boat go by with sodden passengers............... Time for a day of games and chat.
The weather forecast is terrible. Moreton Bay, our entry to Brisbane is due for choppy seas and big winds up to forty knots with a warning of up to forty per cent more. Out at sea, the swell is forecast at four metres in one direction and three metres in another. On the AIS real-time shipping map there are not too many chums out and about. Despite us being in the shelter of South Stradbroke Island we have a bit of a wiggle when a big roller comes through. We had a planning meeting from here to Cairns, as always written in sand and here more than anywhere, very weather dependent.
