A Bouncy Trip to Robe

The predominant wind direction in SE South Oz , at this time of year, is south easterly. This is the same Direction one must head, to get back to Victoria. The lightest winds this week were last night..10-15 kts so the ff we went. The stb. motor did not miss a beat and we got some propulsion from a reefed main. Not quite the angle to sail, unless of course, heading for Tasmania. The seaway was quite lively and so was my stomach. Despite this, we had risotto for tea ( though Don who never gets the mal de mer had to stir) , kept the log and didn’t bang into any thing. 24 hrs it took us. Now we’re parked outside the Robe Marina waiting for enough tide to get in. Oh SO pleasant to stop.
