Still More Head Winds

Montague Island

13th February 2009
POS S -36 25.539’
E +150 04.346’

Departed Batemans Bay @ 0635, Wind E 10-20 kts, raining and cold. The wind changed to southerly then to an easterly. It would rain and the wind would disappear and reappear with shifts of over 100 degrees common. All in all another very frustrating days sailing, lots of sail changing and reefing. The sea was very confused @ Montague Island, enjoyed a nice tight reach before having to motor sail with the main up. The wind seemed to change every hour. Once past Montague Island we had the reacher out until we arrived @ Bermagui, the sun was out and it was a lot warmer. We were met by Reg & Judy LeCompte from Judy Lyn (Chamberlin 13.5 Mtr) cruising catamaran.
