What a Difference a Day Makes

Tom & Leanne
Salmon Fish Farm - Bruny Island

Quarries Bay - Bruny Island

POS S -43 21.383’
E +147 11.420’

6th March 2009

Departed Barnes Bay @ 1130 heading further down the D’entrecasteaux Channel. Started out motoring with the generator running, not much wind. Ended up beating our way down to Quarries Bay in a SW wind with no more 15 knots. Nice afternoons sail with full main & jib. Arrived @ 1640 after covering 31.9 nm in 4 ¾ hrs @ AVE 6.6 kts.
A big difference from a gusting wet and cold 35 kts, with a treble reefed main then finally no jib!
