At anchor Snug Cove, Twofold Bay

The fresh breeze held right up into Twofold Bay. We continued to run wing on wing, with the odd gybe to adjust course so as not to be pushed too close into the coast. We passed Green Cape with overfalls cascading around us at 1845, and rounded Red Point with the black silhouette of the ruins of Boyd Tower where whalers once looked out for their passing prey standing stark against the grey sky at 21.10. Here, the wind left us and I handed sail to motor the remaining two miles to anchor a cable off Cocora Beach. After a wash and a cup of tea, I laid my head down to rest.

All is well.
