The trip is definitely over now with Connected back in Geelong with all the fleet! The bay seems very small after the high seas:)
We’ve had a great trip and can’t wait to do another – where can we go next??
We’ll let you know!

Wednesday 13 March

Connected, being unwilling to finish this trip, has another buddy in Mystic who joined us for a lovely meal at the Queenscliff Hotel and then drinks at QCYC before going back aboard. Also here was Tammy Marie and her crew from Geelong.

After a great night of WAR stories at QCYC, The fleet started to split. Sapphire, SerenityNOW, Windjammer11 and Cadence left at various times headed for home. Connected and Elixir just dont want the trip to end and decided to stay at QCYC. ” indefinetly ??? “. So the TOUR has ended for some BUT, boats have promised to upload the best pictures of the trip at a later date. So please keep checking the blog for updates etc. signing off for now……Paul.

Total distance aboard the “mighty” CADENCE. 1223 Nautical miles.

Saturday 9th March

We left Cleelands Bight at 1100 for the 50 mile trip to the heads. After a rolly night, it was a pleasure to get moving again. A great sail with a NW NE of varable strength got us to the heads a bit before slack water but conditions were ideal and we all traversed the rip before 1800. All rafted in Queenscliff and had a celebratery drink and BBQ.
