Departed Deephole Bay, Southport @ 0640 very early start, Plan A Port Davey/Bathurst Harbour or Plan B Recherche Bay. Wind very light 5 kts - motor sailing with Main only, bugger Plan B. Arrived @ 0850 and anchored in Rocky Bay after covering 13.5 nm in 2 hrs 22 mins @ AVE 5.7 kts. Sat down to a hearty breakfast of bacon and eggs before heading ashore. Walked the South Cape Bay Track (part of the South West Track to Port Davey) out to the Coal Bluff a distance of 7.7 km’s taking 2 hours one way, walking thought the bush then out onto a board walk across the swamp lands into the coastal bush. A neat view at the Coal Bluff looking out to South East Cape and a great walk to the furthest south in Tasmania/Australia.
