Underway

14 September 2016
Just a brief note to say that the voyage has officially commenced.Thanks very much to the hospitality extended by the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia a very pleasant week was spent in Sydney at Rushcutters Bay, and I thank the Commodore and Committee for their generosity in allowing me stay in the duckpond. The official start time of 10:23:50 EST 15/09/2016 was recorded by Justine, the CYCA Sailing master and taken from Hornby Light with the transit of North Head Light, Sydney Harbour and I thank her for her time and interest.
A blustery but favourable NW wind had me flying over the start line under double reefed main and staysail. I'm now off Maroubra Beach and after a few lulls under the cliffs of Dover Heights the forecast 30 knots seem to be about right so I'll stick to this conservative setup.
