Re: Cruising Broken Bay / September School Holidays

Good stuff WopalX.

We had everything from wet, windy and stormy to perdfect. The day that was perfect, the camera stopped working.

A beam reach gave us a good speed



A storm produced a bit of breeze



Saw a few dolphin, turtles and a baby whale in the southern bay - [ was looking for but missed the whales' mum!]

Back to work tomorrow.....

Re: Cruising Broken Bay / September School Holidays

Great pics guys! Great looking kiddos Wopalx!! Man, your anchorage was stacked with boats! Wow.

Hey St Anna, when my knot meter hits 35, I hear the distinct rumble of legos and matchbox cars cratering across the floor. You too!???

Hiya Brian.

The next generation is a little old for legos now!


This activity is quite rare so I took a photo.

He wanted to head off in the breezy conditions. I negotiated that we wait until it dropped to a mild 20kn before we took off.


Our anchorage had only us in it until this gentleman arrived and dropped his anchor on ours. His stern was about 15-20 ' away so I didnt sleep much that night as we both had about 80' of chain out!

Anyway. Hope all is good with the cd crowd.

cheers
DC

Re: Cruising Broken Bay / September School Holidays

Brian,
That crowded anchorage (Refuge Bay and America Bay - they interlock) is probably the most crowded in all of Australia during holidays but it is full of moorings (used only casually) so anchoring is not necessary. It also has a couple of nice wee beaches, one complete with waterfall.
Not good for grumpy old anti social misanthropes like a certain fuzzball I could name but outside of the holidays it can be almost deserted.

StAnna ... had the same thing happen on Saturday evening. There were three of us anchored with plenty of room between us and that left most of the bay unoccupied when this knobhead lobs in around 2200 and anchors in the middle of the three of us. Sigh.

Wopalx ... I've never seen dolphins that far in. Very cool.

The picture of the anchorage was not where we were cruising. It is a general area of moorings out the from of a yacht club and cafe. I was just tied up on their short term mooring while I went ashore for a coffee and muffin.

Re: Cruising Broken Bay / September School Holidays

Compared to Christmas / New Year there was almost no boats in the Refuge Bay area last week.

Has been some rockfalls at the waterfall beach since I was last there.

My goofup .... I was thinking that was you moored in the section joining America and Refuge. Is that off the shop/cafe adjoining the RMYC at Cottage Point ?
