POS S -43 33.965’

13th March 2009

Departed Spain Bay @ 0630 with a stream of Circumnavigation boats all motoring out into Port Davey in the dark. Motored until just before East Pyrmids then pulled up the mainsail and motor sailed. Passed SW Cape @ 0845, and still NO WIND. Had to motor all the way to Recherche Bay, it either feast or fame with the wind down here in Tassie. Lots of weed to dodge and off Whale Head we hit a large patch of weed and damaged the stbd outboard impellor. Headed around into Snake Point, Recherche Bay arriving @ 1615 and anchored in shallow water. Bruce and Tom jumped into in the dinghy and pulled the bottom of the stbd outboard and changed the impellor. One hour later the stbd outboard was back in action and we moved over into Coalbins Bay, Recherche Bay @ 1755, covering 70.1 nm in 9 hrs 57 mins @ AVE 7.0 kts.
