Keppel Bay

Friday May 7th.

How lucky are we being with the weather? Every day sunny, with 15 knots of wind to give us a reach or kite run. It doesn't get much better than this.

 So we are making great progress, powering up the coast at an average of about 10 knots, (looking a bit like this.)

From Burnett Heads (near Bundaberg) we made an early start at 4am, and romped up the coast for 10 hours to Pancake Creek. More wilderness. Just lovely. Birdlife galore. 


Then today, a further jump through Gladstone and The Narrows to a little creek on the south side of Keppel Bay.
