Catching the fleet

The fleet of Van Diemans Land Circumnavigators from Melbourne are heading north. These include Its A Privilige and Chakana from RBYC. By amazing coincidence, whilst walking along the beach at Fortesque Bay, 2 days ago, we met up with Peter Strain who had arrived by car, enroute to Port Arthur. He was planning to exit the Dennison Canal today and sure enough as we sailed past Marion Bay bound for Orford, we came across them. To be sociable, we have diverted to Chinamans Beach on Mariah Island, where several other yachts and 2 enormous stink boats are also anchored. It’s going to blow again from the north tomorrow , so we plan to stay until tomorrow afternoon then head to Triabunna for some fuel and food before setting off for Flinders Island.
