Koombana Bay Twilight Sail

Wednesday found me in Bunbury for work, so I called into the Koombana Bay Sailing Club to see if anyone I knew was there. Luckily for me, Terry was just about to go out on Wayward, his 32' Catalina (Ken had already left on his trimaran). Despite coming a relaxed last, it was a lot of fun and definitely [...]

New speed record?

Today the GPS decides to work. It had to - I had just ordered a new antenna from the US. I have also installed a wind indicator on the top of the mast, probably something I wouldn't need if I had hair.

Shark Bay trip - day 8

On our last day we made an early start north to have a final crack at reaching Big Lagoon. The wind was a beautiful 10 kn from the south-west giving us a direct and leisurely sail to our destination. Once again our progress was matched to our stomaches and we reached the lagoon shortly before lunch. [...]

Shark Bay trip - days 4-7

The next 3 to 4 days excelled themselves in a steady stream of mild sunny days with the odd afternoon seabreeze. Apart from a few minor journeys out to deeper water for fishing (lots of mackerel) we did not do much sailing at all. Still it is very hard to complain and we visited the local sights and competed with each other to see who could do the most crosswords.

10kn+
Wednesday found me in Bunbury for work, so I called into the Koombana Bay Sailing Club to see if anyone I knew was there. Luckily for me, Terry was just about to go out on Wayward, his 32' Catalina (Ken had already left on his trimaran). Despite coming a relaxed last, it was a lot of fun and definitely a more refined (and drier) form of sailing.

So, if ever you are in Bunbury on a Wednesday evening over summer, drop into the sailing club and be welcomed!

12-15kn SSW, 26ยบ
Today the GPS decides to work. It had to - I had just ordered a new antenna from the US. I have also installed a wind indicator on the top of the mast, probably something I wouldn't need if I had hair.

With a lovely 12 knot breeze on the way out, building to about 15kn on the way back and very little chop, the 10 mile run didnt take me long at all. Top speed 15.7kn, just before I buried the leeward float! Average trip speed 11kn.

Frustratingly, the wind then got up a bit more and I struggled getting the main furled. Ended up driving up onto the beach to finish the job, much to the amusement of a few of the locals!

Perfect
On our last day we made an early start north to have a final crack at reaching Big Lagoon. The wind was a beautiful 10 kn from the south-west giving us a direct and leisurely sail to our destination. Once again our progress was matched to our stomaches and we reached the lagoon shortly before lunch.

Accessing the lagoon was quite difficult as the water is very shallow and there was a strong outgoing tide, however, with a combination of wind and motor and the odd bit of footwork we made it into the lagoon itself. The deeper waters are a fantastic turquoise with flashes of green. There are dolphins and abundant birdlife, not to mention old age pensioners in their four-wheel drives.

The tide was out and the beaches were ripe for exploring and I think I can say that the kids may even have had as much fun as I had. You know its a successful trip when you start planning the next one on your way back.

Thanks very much Shark Bay!
