Kick N Back

Chartered: 14 Jul 2011

After chartering  Lazyitis from Cumberland, my sons and I were keen to return.   We convinced the wife and she decided to come along this time on Kick n Back.
Due to high wind on the first few days, we had to be on the west side of the main islands. There was  cloud and a little rain. This was a blessing for it caused us to do different things to what we did last year.  This time we visited the inlets and did the walk trails including Whitsunday Peak and Whitsunday Cairn. The solar panels that recharge the batteries dont work in cloudy weather.  We had to bring forward our planned visit to Hamilton Island by two days to recharge them. An unexpected benefit was we then had sufficient days afterwards to head down to Burning Point, Shaw Island. As we left Hamilton Island for Shaw Island on the morning or our fourth day the glorious weather with ideal < 15 knot winds commenced. It did not change for the remaining seven days.
One of our objectives was to photograph our mascot, a rubber duck, at as many of the 20 designated campsites around the charter area. To do this we had to be very mindful of the given tides and winds.  We got to ten of them. Many had to be accessed by dinghy from safe anchorage up to 4kms away.  We also searched for informal trails marked by blue flotsam.  We only discovered this informal trail marking at the end of last years trip.  This year we discovered three more of them. The boys also hoped to give mum the experience of a rough night in Butterfly Bay.  The previous visit we had been buffeted and swung about all night by strong bullets of wind.  However this year, the wind was calmer and a catamaran is more stable. The variety of fish and sea-life seen this visit, was much more than the previous visit.
We need to come back again. We still have another ten more campsites to photograph.  But really we do not need a reason especially when it is all made so hassle free by friendly and helpful assistance from the Cumberland Staff.
