6am departure saw us being chased away from beautiful Curlew Island by a rain storm, as if to say its time you left here guys!
We are steaming again, but got a bit of wind when the rain squall came through inshore of us so motorsailing now. Finally have phone and internet back.
Plenty of ships at anchor off Hay Point coal loader for us to weave our way through today on our way to Mackay.
Baly is now secured at Mackay Marina, having arrived at 2.30pm this afternoon.
Well done boys – glad you are at safe anchorage. How long will you spend in Mackay? Your meals sound pretty good – presume you have not been doing too much cooking Derek!
