First Solo Sail mission.

https://youtu.be/GfEUsy03ZYY

After reaching the Whitsunday Islands with my brother Toby I felt I was finally ready to try a solo sailing mission. I set off from Airlie beach with a rough idea of where I wanted to go on my 2 weeks out. This video is part 1 and just shows the first few days before part 2 I head off to the outer reef.

Nicely done. Looks like you were really enjoying yourself! Hadn't realized the pirate fad had made it out of the US so surprised to see one down under.

He did sail to "Hook" Island. Seems appropriate.

Hahha, thanks. I just looked quickly in a shop for bandanas and they only had two so I brought both of them, a green one and a pirate on. Sorta cliche' I know but it keeps the hair out of my eyes.
