32 45 S, 152 13 E, Off Port Stephens entrance. A Light (still) westerly so motor sailing in the right direction. We have just topped up the fuel tank and have sufficient to avoid putting in to Nelson bay so are expecting an early morning arrival at the CYCA Sydney tomorrow. Will update after arrival. Shame it looks like the fine warm weather has finally left us.

31 02 S, 153 08 E, Currently off Kempsey motor sailing in light variable winds. Stopped off to briefly fill the fuel tank last night in Coffs, Nothing else to report except its very pleasant weather despite the low wind and hence boat speed. All’s well.

Friday, 11 August 2023, 0830 Hrs

29 23 S, 153 35 E, Currently 10 Nm East of Yamba and making good progress under engine only. The wind started off in the NE after leaving Southport and has gradually backed around to the SW and is expected to continue to back further through the day through to the SE at only 10 Kts. This means we will continue to be motoring for the next 24 hrs so are planning a quick stop in Coffs Harbour to top up fuel and continue underway this evening. All is well on board.

Thursday, 10 August 2023, 1715 Hrs

Leaving Southport Yacht Club slightly delayed whilst attaching the Autopilot to the helm so the daylight is fading but at least everything is in order. Update again in the morning.
