Departed Little Pioneer Bay after breakfast at 7.30am. Passed the sugar ship Andromeda anchored off waiting to load at Lucinda’s long 5.6 km jetty, which apparently dips 1.2 m over it’s length due to the curvature of the earth.
The scenery today is breathtaking, you could be in Bora Bora, Grenadines or Marquesas, but no we are looking at Australia’s own Hinchinbrook Island, the major peak is Mt Bowen, 1142 metres high .
With a light Northerly again today we elected to go past Cape Richards where we have anchored before, onto Goold Island which has an anchorage near its sand spit on the SW corner more suited to Northerly conditions. We did get a 2 hour sail across from Cape Sandwich to Goold Island. Lasagne for dinner tonight.
