Just Posted: A Stormy Sail in 2002

Sailing to Yamba

We've just posted a story from 2002 when we left Sydney on a nice morning and got a shocker when we made it out past the Heads: It was blowing like stink.

It was a rough morning but we did knock off the miles on that trip: In twenty four hours we’d covered 175 miles even against the southward flowing East Coast Current. Did we like it? During the day it was simply a fast ride we’d rather not be taking. At night it was dark, loud, and scary but we carried on, and didn’t turn in until Yamba. And no, we didn’t like it.

But we got through it.
