Cairns - Over half way to Cape York!!!
Tue 31 May 2016 00:46
Up at dawn and away back out through the narrow entrance into steep seas and more rain, sails up and it was a fast close reach sail in the same squally wet conditions. Fitzroy Island loomed out of the mist and we headed towards the boat channel into Cairns. We had planned to anchor out but were both thoroughly soaked and tired so we headed into Marlin Marina in the centre of Cairns to rest and recover and have a lovely hot shower – fooled again, it was cold - water heater had packed up and it was Sunday evening – 2 not happy people!
7 day break in Cairns. First 3 days it rained! Then the sun came out and wow it was hot!
Cleaning, shopping, cycling, running and doing land stuff, plus a day off to do Kuranda Skyrail and Railway up through the Rainforest and majestic Barron Gorge.
