Safe arrival in Australia

It is Sunday, November 16th and we arrived at the Rivergate Marina outside Brisbane at about 1:00 p.m completing our 830 nm passage in 6 nights. The last day of the passage was great – nice wind and smooth seas. All in all a very easy passage. We would have loved to have a little more wind, but with wind you get more ocean swell and therefore more discomfort, so I have to say that I was quite happy with how the trip went. We probably motored about half of the 6 days. We are both very tired now as we did not get enough sleep on the trip – just short stretches – and what we need right now is a quick dinner and a long uninterrupted sleep.

Good night. More tomorrow.
