Balina/Yamba and beyond
29 August 2007 | Nth. Queensland
Day panning out to be sunny with very light winds. Set the Spinnaker and just hoped the wind would pick up. Whales/dolphins, smooth seas - just need a bit of a puff to make it perfect.
Rounded the Byron Bay light house around 4.00pm.
Dinner of steak and salad - mor chady's and another moonlight night. This is definitely the life!
Quietly enjoying the night when all hell broke loose. We were dive bombed by two jets!! The noise was ear splitting and believe me if you had of had a weak heart - I think it would have been goodnight! This went on for about 1/2 hour of these two jets flying straight over the top of us. After three passes they decided to leave us alone and the quiet was almost as deafening and the jets.
Again another peaceful night of 3 on and 3 off. Hopefully make Coffs Harbour tomorrow.
Unfortunately today was mostly motoring, but it is a good test for the motor and electronics which we had serviced in Manly, and at this stage all is good.
