Valentia Island
07/03/2012

June 19, 2012 From N. Goulborn Island we traveled 44 miles ( a short one) to Valentia Island--our chartplotter calls it Valentia, but the guide book calls it Valencia. Again, the seas and wind were a little rough--but we were headed around Cockburn Point which should protect us from the SE wind and waves. But as we turned the corner around the point the wind increased and the waves were hitting us on the beam (the side of the boat). We were really rocking and taking spray over the side. This is not sounding like a fun adventure. After we arrived at Valentia Island we had a little difficulty finding a deep enough area to anchor--but we finally dropped the anchor in 17 feet of water. At first it seemed that the anchorage was exp[osed to the wind--but the wind died and we had a good night. I did get up numerous times during the night as I heard many different sounds--this is my curse. And up at 6:15 and away by 6:45am (a little variety)--heading for another underwear soiling adventure-- going through Bowen Straight.
