Lachlan winching the screecher

Position: 30°18.251’ S 153°08.789’ E - Coffs Harbour

Passing the wharf as we left Port Macquarie

Cloud over the dawning sun

Hugging the coast - 1 knot of current going with us! (North-East at 37°)

As we move out to round the point we get into 1.7 knots going against us! ( South at 173°)

Sailing up the beach just outside the breakers - only 100m from disaster

Better breeze toward the end, but we were in “GET THERE” mode by then!
