Family and friends sailing on Annecam

17 June 2019 | Burnett River, Burnett Heads, Queensland, Australia.
Cam "H" | Overcast and cool
We have our Western Australian family, sister in-law Ann, nephew Pete and dear friend Fiona staying with us, they came over to help celebrate Annie’s 60th birthday on Saturday. They have been here before, so it was time to show them something a bit different, like a sail on Annecam.

We weighed anchor this morning and motored down the Burnett River towards Hervey Bay (not the town on the south end of the bay) and out into the Coral Sea, which is part of the Pacific Ocean.

We logged on with Marine Rescue Bundaberg (VMR Bundaberg), giving John in the radio watch room our vessel details, persons on board, mobile phone number, our planned sail and our estimated time of arrival back in the river.

It was a nice breeze about 15 knots from the south-west but it was a cool breeze, we were all glad for the side clears and the fully enclosed cockpit, The sea state was almost dead flat with a swell less than half a metre from the east-north-east.

We planned to sail over towards Fraser Island to see if we could spot any early season whale that have been sighted over there, John at Marine Rescue Bundaberg said that there were a few dolphin about and as I was below communicating with Marine Rescue, Annie said than a boat approached to say hello. A short while later we received a call on the VHF radio from the same boat and it was Tony, a fellow member with VMR Bundaberg on his boat WIKSTAR, he said it was a bit sloppy out in the bay.

As all the crew on board were not sailors, it did not take long before one was not feeling well, so after only a few miles sailing we made the decision to turn around and head back into the river.

Any sail is a good sail and I got the chance to clean the barnacles off the bottom of Macenna our dinghy.

The photo is the track of our short sail.

“We learn something from everyone who passes through our lives. Some lessons are painful, some are painless. but all are priceless.”
