bucking the current in the channel heading to Brisbane River for customs, Had a very ugly sail yesterday strong winds up to 40 kts on the nose, heavy rain showers at times, fast reaching at 9 kts...a full day before entering the channel at midnight and then dodging freighters in the channel coming and going to and from Brisbane. Happy to be getting in. Thank you Gulf Harbour Radio
Great sailing if you could turn off the occasional shower
Some freighter traffic, very dark with no moon, starting to count the miles...250 to Moreton Bay, all's well, comfy sailing
All's well, getting cooler by the day, long johns are on, nice to be sailing again after 22 hrs of motoring through flat calm
