Ready To Go
28 December 2010
Departing Sydney tomorrow, Thursday evening! Weather looks good - northerlies blowing Thursday and Friday, then light southerlies. Hoping to get to Eden, 200 miles from here, in 2 days.
Fuel, water and provisions today.
Nick can come as far as Eden, then he'll hop off; Endra will join us there for the last leg.
Had a wonderful day out on Sydney harbour yesterday with daughter Kate, husband Pat, friend Paul, cousin Geoff, partner Rosie, with Adrienne and me playing host and hostess. Saw every conceivable type of craft from wooden gaffer, foil-riding one-up dinghy, square-rigger, tourist jetboats, kayakers, ferries, power boats and sailing yachts, and a cruise ship. Had lunch by a sunny little beach. A pure delight.
