Sandy Straits

The good weather continued when we left Mooloolaba yesterday for the 40 mile run up to the Wide Bay bar which is the entry point to the bottom of the Sandy Straits running between Fraser Island and the mainland.
Although we are now fairly late in the season there are still plenty of vessels of all shapes and sizes heading north.Our entry over the bar was without incident in company with a Hanse mono and two small cats. There were 16 boats in the anchorage last night.
We are now well and truely into the South East Trade Wind belt with 15-25 knots forecast for the rest of the week, so we should be able to cover some good ground when we leave here.
