Saturday 2nd October
At 7.15am we motored 5 miles around to
Tipperary Waters Marina and waited our turn to enter the lock into the marina.
Because of the huge tidal range here (7 meters) you have to go through a lock to
enter the marina. Quite a few rally boats are anchored in Fannie Bay and we
followed each other into the marina at fifteen minute intervals.

Keith the lock
Eleven rally boats entered the
marina today, some we haven't seen since Fiji and Vanuatu, so Mark on Blue Magic
got out his Excelsior tours hat and organised a get together at Dinah Yacht Club
just a short walk away. It was great catching up with everyone, we ended
the evening on Enchantress for a wee dram.
