September Splendour!

The suggestion that we have another sailing trip in the Whitsundays in September 2010 met without resistance amongst the family. Along with the unanimous vote to sail we decided to revert back to a monohull after previously renting Scarlett a Seawind 1160 multihull in 2007.

With the briefing behind us, (which started late due to a delay caused by the road through the Cannon Valley being closed due to flooding), we scampered for Woodwark Bay only a short sail from Abel Point Marina.  Leaving the marina behind as always gives an overwhelming sense of freedom and independence. From that point on for the next seven days all the decisions would be ours and what ever pace we wanted to set was up to us and the winds.

Day two produced great sailing conditions so we were able to sail on a reach all the way across to Nara inlet. This was the fastest we had experienced sailing as a family but I am sure to the experienced yachties we were just cruising. Even with Olivetta healing well there was no anxiety amongst the crew just shear thrill and excitement that we were really sailing.

The next days were spent moving from Nara to Tongue Bay and a visit to the Hook island resort.  Next on to Hamilton Island via Whitehaven Beach. Although we had quite a few heavy rain showers it all added to make it a genuine sailing experience which was a contrast to our previous sailing on the Scarlett where the conditions were near perfect (but with only light winds and less sailing). An overnight stay at Hamilton Island resupplied the provisions, some shopping and caught up with friends who were staying on the island for dinner. We took our friends out for the day, and after dropping our guests off we sailed to Cid Harbour and then our final night at Macona inlet.

Our sailing in the Whitsundays has been a fabulous experience for all of the family, where we have been able to extend ourselves not only individually but also as a family.
