Airlie Beach

26 July 2016 | Gloucester Passage
All good things must come to an end! We left Maggie on Saturday morning and with a light breeze and sunshine motor sailed to Upstart Bay for the night. We saw lots of whales in the distance - they were breaching and waving find. Our first sighting on this trip. Very calm anchorage with a lovely sunset. An early start on Sunday which gave us a spectacular sunrise and flat seas, blue skies and more whales. Overnight at Woodwark Bay just north of Airlie. On Monday we crossed Whitsunday Passage and picked up a mooring for the night. A boisterous motor back to Port of Airlie Marina this morning with gusts over 20 knots and around 2 meter swell. Nice to get tied up at our berth and we will be here for a week while some windy weather goes through. Weather is sunny and warm so a relaxing week ahead. All well on board.
