Heading West! S10:46:843 E142:18:802
Sunday 28th June, 0800 local time. S10:46:843 E142:18:802
finally made it to the northernmost tip of mainland
We have just set off across the Gulf of Carpentaria for our 48 hour (ish) sail to the Wessel islands further west (about 350 miles). It can get quite rough going across the Gulf as it’s quite shallow and with too much wind the seas build up with a very short, very steep chop – not nice. The forecast is for lighter winds for the next couple of days so keep your fingers crossed for us. I’ve taken the magic pill!
I’ll post our position on mailasail each day around this time if you want to follow our progress. http://blog.mailasail.com/sy-supertedv not promising on any comments!
All the best
