This morning at 0630 I set the mainsail and slipped the mooring off St Bees Island. We were fortunate to have a gentle easterly breeze making for a relatively brisk beam reach, albeit a bit rolly in the short swell that had built up from the south east over the past few days.  Three hours later we entered Mackay Harbour, rounded into the wind, handed sail, and motored in to the marina. Looking forward to a last hurrah with brother Michael before continuing south on Monday.

All is well.
