What cat - contrary to what Mark J said some of them - even minikeel boats actually do go upwind, mine certainly does.
I would give the narrows and Gladstone the miss - long way out of the way for no great reason.
I might choose the following
go to percy (65 MILE) good first day
THEN YELLOW PATCH - CAPE CAPRICORN 120 MILE long day but achievable
then LAdy Musgrave - 70 mile
Wide Bay (double island point) 130 mile
Note that these distance are very rough.
The Lady Musgrave route
is optional you could go inside fraser island if the weather
is crap but its a bit of a pain in terms of navigating round the sand bars.
