Yes, good point about the ferry, and for me, about two thirds of the fun is getting there. (The other third is getting the mast
up and down without wrecking the boat, the marriage, or the child.)
Thanks for the destination advice, I'd never even heard of the Sir Joseph banks group, but I am new to SA.
Wow, they DO look nice! Yep, I've put that lot firmly on the to do list, and soon. We've been meaning to get over to Coffin bay since we arrived, we'd heard it was good, so one more vote for that destination.
I'm getting into the library this arvo to pick up a book about sailing destinations near Adelaide, and hopefully it will answer some of my concerns about the current
in the Backstairs Passage. Being an old sea kayaker, I am always concerned by currents, I can't believe I didn't think of it and it had to be pointed out to me. I wonder if the book will have the JB Group on it too?
Do you have a prefered anchorage at the islands? I found a good guide at the Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron that recommend anchorages
based on winds etc, great idea, but no aesthetic judgements.
