After a very rough and windy night at anchor we set off at 6.00 this morning for the 80 mile leg to Flinders Island. This was probably the strongest wind we have experienced on a passage in this boat with wind gusts to 35 knots. Thankfully, having the wind almost directly behind us and the stabilizers working overtime gave us very comfortable ride.Intersting to share these narrow passages through the reef with tankers and bulk carriers.
