La Belle Vie

Chartered: 20 Sep 2010

The Kidd and Co Crew, under Captian Robert Kidd set sail on 20 September 2010 on the lovely La Belle Vie!....Correction, we set sail on the 21st September after very unusual rain conditions saw us stranded at the Marina on the first night....In no way did it spoil our trip, we were off and sailing by 9am on the 21st and we never looked back.  As it was our first trip with Cumberland we played it safe and settled at Nara Inlet over night, we swam every morning and evening no matter where we were, the water temperature was fastastic.  On our second day we headed for Stonehaven and on the way, under full sail, I lost my cap in the water....We came back to Nara inlet that night and the next morning headed for Cid Harbour.  On our way, under full sail again, we passed something in the water...Yes it was my cap..over 24 hours since it blew off my head.  Our quick thinking and risk taking crew member 'Chris', despite my protests, jumped in the dingy and took off to find the cap.  By the time he was in the dingy we had lost site of the cap bobbing in the water, but Chris returned victorious and we are still laughing about it. And yes, I still have the lucky cap.  We only had one mutiny, where in 20 knot winds on the way from Cid Harbour to Happy Bay, the Captain asked his crew to put a reef in the sail, we said almost in unison "nah we don't need a reef!"but we changed our mind when the winds got to 26 knots...and it was too late to reef...The Captain was not happy! We snorkled in Butterfly Bay, took the bush walk to the lookout in Tongue Bay and spent a beautiful day on Whitehaven Beach. We also stopped in at Happy Bay for a drink at the bar and a Pizza.  There are so many desitinations that we did not see and I think we played it safe the first time around, so we definitely be back to explore this beautiful piece of QLD again.  Thank you to the wonderful people at Cumberland Charter Yachts who went out of their way to help us and ensure we were confident and comfortable.
