Safely across Gulf of Carpentaria

Sunset on passage

Sunset on passage

We’ve arrived safely in the Wessel islands having sailed across the Gulf in 10 – 15kts south easterly, can’t believe our luck. Now waiting in Two Island bay for a window to continue, 20 to 30kts forecast. Here with Norsa and Lorrigray – British, Inspiration Lady – Canadian, Rurea – American, Garamar – Dutch, Calypso – South Africa and Equanimity – NZ, so it’s a multi national anchorage. All got together this evening on Rutea for drinks and nibbles, great evening. Probably be here for a day or two. No wifi signal, message sent via SSB.

Message from Camomile

We have left Cairns and we are making our way to Darwin which will take a week or two. During this time we won’t have any phone signal or be in wifi range so any messages please send to the mdqf6 email address (see contacts). I’ll write some blogs on the way and post them when we get to Darwin. G’day to everyone. Bill and Sue xx
