The sun was shining, the wind had just come up, it was 1330, and we were pulling away from the dock.
After lots of hugs, pictures, and yes, even a little tear, we said goodbye to our family who were standing on the dock waving, and to our home port in Midland. Now the adventure begins. I’m not quite sure what awaits us but what I do know…..it’s going to be great. No matter what happens, this is going to be a fabulous adventure.
We sailed out of Midland Bay under perfect conditions and four hours later we were in Big Sandy Bay on Christian Island surrounded by several boats from the Sailing Club who were there racing (H.I.R.C.) for the weekend. It was fun hanging out with the gang one last time.
Next stop Wingfield Basin, Cabot Head.
