Hi TDW
The photo is of Digby Is (near the Percies) Sth of the Whitsundays. We had the place to ourselves until this solo canuck dropped in. It made the place crowded. A few months later, 2 yachts were dragged onto rocks and sunk in this anchorage.

Yeah I have anchored off the yacht club in Gove. I didnt go thro TI this year as quarantine need to clear you in TI, but 15nm away at Seisia you can get/do all needed with no clearances.

I just send a few photos to get you guys going

cheers
David

St Anna: Thanks for posting those. Awesome pictures. I'll need to show them to Ali.

Are you guys on one of the Peterson Cutters? How have you found the draft around the broadwater etc? (you can PM if you like, since that's a bit off topic!)

Cheers

St Anna, you remain an inspiration.
Sometimes I get so carried away thinking about distant shores that I forget about the varied and awesome cruising to be had within our borders.

South Australia

If anyone is sailing in and around South Australia, there are some useful cruising guides on the website of the Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron.

Enjoy.

Thanks ChrisM. The bottom of the our country has always sounded scary to me, but I think it would be great fairly unexplored part of oz.

One guide I find helpful is "Going Troppo" Using all the guides together seems to work the best. One thing I have noticed with cruisers who use Lucas's book is they all want to anchor on his anchor symbol.

LOL.

That must be fairly amusing at times

Really need to get this updated don't we ? My fault. Library is at home and most of my posts come from office. Says much about my work ethic I suppose.

F182, thanks for mentioning Bettingham-Moore. There is another, Tasmanian Anchorage Guide maybe ? Will try and remember to haul it out this evening.

Aint that the truth!!

Also, they follow tracks from one of his symbols to the next. He writes in the way the old pilots used - You have to read b/w the lines a bit. Eg - if he says 'good in neaps', he means forget in springs!

However, saying this, I have used his books like a bible for decades now and could not have more respect for Alan and the others who put their boats into spots so others can follow.
