Yorkey's Knob to Cooktown

We started at Yorkey's Knob, a small town just north of Cairns, where we had left Nimrod at the end of our cruise in the middle of June. The new mission is go go north to Cooktown and immerse ourselves in Cook's story.

Easy sailing north with the South-easterlies. Harder to return.

First to the Low Isles, just north of Port Douglas. Then on to the Hope Islands, close to the spot where the Endeavour hit the reef. Then today on to Cooktown.
