Moored Chowder Bay, Port Jackson
Wind: calm
Sea: calm Swell: nil
Weather: sunny, mild
Distance sailed since Melbourne: 589 nm (6.8 knots average speed)

I thought I would add a short addendum to today's entry rather than a separate entry tomorrow. Unfortunately the wind did not fill in and we ended up having to motor the last few miles in through Sydney heads. (Oh, how many times have I passed through these rocky portals over the years!) W'ly winds are forecast for the next day or so, so I have picked up a public mooring in Chowders Bay which gives good shelter from that direction. On Sunday I have a mooring coming available in Rushcutters Bay next to my first sailing club, RAN Sailing Association. I expect we will be here for three to four weeks before we continue north.

All is well.
