We had some time in May to have our vessel all to ourselves.We set off on a lovely Thursday evening with a brisk wind and some substantial fetch in Welcome Passage, after contemplating a duck in to one of the bays on the South side of Thormanby Island to spend the night at anchor,we found around the corner a lovely 20 kn wind on the beam. With a reefed main,we enjoyed a lovely sail attaining 8.2 kn. (10mph). We arrived on a Newcastle Island mooring buoy to spend a windy night followed by a lovely morning walk around the island.
