Noon Position: 36 13.8 S  150 14.0 E
Course: southwest Speed: 4.5 knots
Wind: SSE   F3 - gentle breeze
Sea: slight  Swell: SE / 1.5m
Weather: overcast, cool

At 1030 we weighed anchor, motored out the Wagonga Inlet entrance against the flooding tide and across its barred mouth then, once clear, set sail. The wind is in the south, a headwind, but is forecast to back into the east and then north later in the day.  So, for now, we work our way against the wind inside of Montague Island.  A couple of humpback whales and some dolphins have welcomed Sylph’s return to their domain.

Next stop, Tasmania. At least that’s the plan.

All is well.
