Our voyage has begun………finally!!!

We have finally started our voyage. And what a start it was! An incredibly rough crossing of Bass Strait which included a 24 hour layover at Deal Island. Well incredibly rough by our standards but probably only a 4/10 by Bass Strait standards!

Anyway, we made it with little damage, to Eden where we spent a very pleasant 48 hours. We then pottered on up the NSW coast to Sydney where we are now at anchor. From Eden to Sydney we did what we always intended and that was to travel during the day and anchor somewhere comfortable overnight.

We saw heaps of whales and dolphins all the way up the coast which were really amazing to watch.

Last Vintage is now anchored in beautiful Watsons Bay. Unfortunately we will be here for a little longer than expected as Julian ended up in hospital with a bit of a heart issue.

Nothing too serious we hope! Released from hospital today and, hopefully with a clearance from the GP on Monday, we plan to continue north on Tuesday.

Julian’s son Nick, who came with us to Sydney, set-up a time lapse camera which is (hopefully) recording the voyage ‘in brief’. Now that I am out of hospital I will attempt to figure out how to load the vision to this website so you can ‘glimpse’ what we see as we travel.

Updates will be more frequent……………………..
