Once the winds were southerly again, we slowly worked our way north through the shallow areas of Great sandy strait. We had more water, and better visibility this time, so there were no groundings or other problems. We anchored in Kingfisher Bay just as the sun went down, but did not get any sleep at all. When the tide turned, we were too close to a big motor yacht. It was to dark to move.
At first daylight, half past five this morning, we got the anchor up -and headed north. In 15-20 knots of wind from SE and only small seas, we had a fantastic sail up to Bundaberg today. Doing 6-7 knots we got in early and tied up to the fuel dock for fuel and water. We also got rid of all our rubbish and bought a bread. So no we're happy. The anchorage is nice and calm -and we have a dolphin swimming around the boat, entertaining us. Very promising for a good nights sleep before we do a long jump -200 miles up to Great Keppel Island tomorrow.
