Chartered: 17 Oct 2010

We started our Charter onboard Treasure on the 17th of October 2010.  We had been watching the weather forecast intently for the past 2 weeks trying to work out what was in store for us during our charter.  

We spent the first night at Nara Inlet, the trip across from Airlie Beach gave us the perfect opportunity to familiarise ourselves with Treasure, overall a very user friendly yacht.  Unfortunately we were sailing in Marcs fly season, so the walk to see the Aboriginal paintings at the end of Nara inlet was a quick one!

The sailing conditions over the 7 days were excellent, generally 15-25 kt winds and 0 1.5 metre seas.  Highlights include: Sailing up the East coast of Hook Island and mooring up in Maureens Cove, waking up anchored off Whitehaven beach and dinner at the excellent Bommies Restaurant at the Hamilton Island Yacht Club.  The easy sailing conditions were interspersed with some crossings that got the adrenalin pumping, a night being hit by bullets of wind at Stonehaven or crossing the Whitsunday passage in poor visability and 30+ kt winds.

By the end of our Charter we were planning our next one, probably on a slightly larger yacht with a few more people.  Overall we were very impressed with the staff at Cumberland Charter Yachts, Treasure and the beautiful Whitsundays.  Anyone need a crew member for Hamilton Island Race week this year?!
