Nobby's Head Light, entering Newcastle
Another light wind day, motor-sailing from Coaster's to Newcastle Harbour. We look likely to be going to Coffs in short hops, grabbing wind as we can, and not in one big leg. So be it - tomorrow we'll probably sit tight here and head for Nelson Bay Wednesday.
We set off about 07:30 today from Coastrer's Retreat in company with Pete and Lizzie on "Windana", a nice Roberts steelie. They got in to Newcastle a little before us and were there to take our lines as we pulled into our berth beside theirs. They are nice, down-to-earth people and we may end up seeing some more of them as we head North.
