I am a Perth based sailor, and am preparing for a couple of days at sea. I have a mooring
on the river, much cheaper than a pen at on of the marinas
or clubs outside, sure lowering and raising the mast
is a hassle, but not too bad.
On wed am[27/12/06] my son and I will motor
down river bright and early while I lower mast, under bridges, mast up, then off we go.
Thios is my first time out to sea in this yacht, our destination is Mandurah, 30 nm south, an easy day sail, tho winds look to be a little light.
We will overnight at Mandurah in the marina, 1st night is free under reciprocal membership
, counter meals
in the yacht club bar.
Next day back out and home, if there are good breezes we can detour as time allows.
The WA waters have several good anchorages scattered a day apart, I have previously been to Mandurah, then Bunbury then Dunsbourgh, stopped a few days then the same return.
Over the next couple of years I wil be getting up and down our coast.
