After a thorough 3 hour briefing, we motored across the Whitsunday Passage. At Nara Inlet we walked to the aboriginal sites and visited Hook Island resort seeing the effects of the cyclone on the Island helipad. The snorkelling at the jetty on Hook Island was great with lots of fish hanging out there.
With a strong wind warning in place we headed to Cid Harbour for some pleasant walks and some sensible shelter with other charterers.
Sure need to know more about anchoring couldnt have been a truer statement. Must have dropped and raised the anchor 4 times and we were still drifting! What did Tony say again? Pretty soon some helpful sailors yelled out to put the whole lot (length of chain) out. OK lets try that, drop 40m.
20 minutes later back inside Finnigan, Oh thats right, Tony said: scope it out and times it by 4, and add 10 metres for wind- definitely need to allow for wind! By day 3, wed sure learnt more about anchoring!
The morning sked (radio schedule) gave us the all clear to tackle the 1.5m swell coming in on the starboard bow south of Whitsunday Island. From our journal: Alex was laughing, Ryan was hanging on, and I certainly had a wide stance and held on as we rocked and rolled.
Once through the Solway Passage all was good. Sunshine and smooth water waited for us at Whitehaven beach. Our excitement grew as we sighted Mackerel, turtles, reef sharks, and even whales. Snorkelling was our new passion in the clear waters of Chalkies beach, and also at Cateran bay. It was so spectacular and so special to be seeing this wondrous place as a family.
We experienced more delights when we called in at Manta Ray bay-it was so magical to view all of the aquatic wonders below the surface. Good things should take a bit of effort and it was a reward for the rough weather of the first couple of days.
We spent our last night at Shoalhaven anchorage relaxing and reflecting on our voyage, and planning when we would return.
