Saturday August 14th.
We are happily settled in the Whitsundays after some determined sailing. We did 70 nautical miles on Thursday on a tight reach in up to 30 knots of wind from Cape Bowling Green to Bowen . Two reefs at times. We caught a nice 5 kg Spanish Mackerel on the way.
Sunset in Bowling Green Bay, looking back to Cape Cleveland and Maggie Island.
Anchored off the beach at Bowen.
Then on Friday, another full day sailing through the Gloucester Passage to Blue Pearl Bay on Hayman Island. Some lovely snorkelling.

Today we called in to Hamilton Island to refuel and water, and are now near Lindeman Island.
