Beneteau 37
Little One

Chartered: 03 Jul 2011

I am a sailing novice, so I  took a one-day lesson at Southern Cross Sailing School at Manly for a very relevant few hours of training, then with a lot of trepidation from my family, and a briefing from Jeff we set off in Little One with two other families on cats Destiny and Fluffy Muffy.

First afternoon was rainy and poor visibility but the GPS guided us straight into Nara for the night. It was fine by nightfall and stayed that way for the rest of the trip

We spent our second afternoon and overnight on a mooring at Butterfly. Snorkelled in the stinger suits, which did not give any warmth and vowed next time to hire wetsuits instead. The mono rocked a lot at the mooring as the wind and the waves were at 90 deg to each other. Managed to settle it down by dragging the mooring around to the side and the boat swung around into the waves. Also had the idea to raise the main to try and reduce the rocking. Tried it in the morning as an experiment and I think it worked a treat.

Headed off the beach at Whitehaven for the night and went walking up the scenic track next day. Met the Goannas at the picnic grounds.  Back north again to stay at Tongue Bay and enjoy the scenic lookout and cricket on the beach north of Hill Inlet. Headed back up again via coral gardens at Hook then to Macona for the last night. Wind finally blew up for the last morning back to Able Point. Little One finally got to show her form, and accompanied by screams from the crew as she heeled, powering back home on a tight reach pulling away from the cats.

Now I know zip about sailing, but there was just something about that Beneteau - can you fall in love with a charter boat? I don't know but I keep a picture of her as a desktop to remind me of the time we had and to rave to everybody what a great family holiday it was.
