Hi All,

Just a quick update. We left Bundy on Tuesday and sailed to Lady Musgrave Island, not a bad sail and anchored safely in the lagoon around 3.30pm. Spent the night there and then got  up in the morning and had a bit of a look around the Island. Unfortunately the forecast was looking a bit dodgy so we decided to head for pancake creek. We left around 10am and the first few hours were rough. A strong south westerly swell whipped up by the 15-20 knot winds provided plenty of excitement but we also made good time sailing at over 8 knots. as we approached the coast the wind swung around to the south and then the south east and the sea conditions settled and the last couple of hours into pancake creek was slower but certainly more comfortable. We spent a very peaceful night at anchor (much better the at Musgrave) and the kids are now cooking Pancakes in Pancake Creek!! We will probably spend the next few days exploring the area and hiding from the rough and windy weather that is expected over the next few days.

Happy sailing,
