After slogging into a head wind for a couple of days, we got to Mackay, rented a car, and unleashed the quartermaster (aka George) on the supermarket. Amazingly, Nimrod is still afloat!
The weather forecast is not too flash, featuring some strong SE winds starting on Wednesday, exactly on our nose as we head down the Queensland coast.
So today we made the most of the calm to motor off towards Digby Island, and possibly Middle Percy Island.
Thank God for radar. This coal ship loomed out of the fog.
