BWR on the Road Again

POS S -43 08.538’
E +147 19.139’

5th March 2009

After a week of suffering the delights of Hobart waiting for a 974 low to pass, we departed with Cousin Leanne and friend Tom into a cold Antarctic 35 knot south westerly to bring us back to yachting reality! Anchored at Rosebanks Beach in Barnes Bay, Bruny Island tonight, and will continue heading south exploring D’Entrecasteax channel over next few days.

W/Ending 1st March 2009

The week started with the hugh task of taking the main off the boat to deliver to the sailmaker, and then we finished the week with the fun of putting the main back on the boat. It’s very heavy and hard to handle, the reef lines have to be disconnected, then reconnected and the battens have to be unbolted and then rebolted and also need to be tensioned. Bruce spent time repainting the boom of Steve’s and Paul’s Chamberlin 14 Storm Bay plus rolling primer and antifouling on the hulls. Spent a few more nights catching with old friends.
