I didn't go anywhere - feeling a bit crook. Hopefully tomorrow.

Several people have posted their sail trips in the highly popular "What did you do to your sailing boat today?" thread. I'm hoping this thread could become the go-to place to update us on your little sailing adventures - after all, sailing is the point, right?

It's the weekend (a long one here in NSW) so... where did you go on your sailing boat today???

Photos if possible please.

I turned my boat 180 degrees does that count Dr Rog
Ive been meaning to ask you about your mast steps were they home made or bought ones? I sort of like it if as much as possible you can do things to youre boat when you need to , mast steps would help that idea along.

I just got in from a slow trip around mudjimba island off maroochydore. more wind coming back. Bit of a flop around as we left mooloolaba at 9am. I hate it when kayaks pass us. Then had a wonderful BBQ and wine back in the bay and a swim. Water warming up perfect day on the boat. Except dropped the gas regulator in the water. Very embarrassing. Found it with a quick dive and seemed to work ok.

I just got back from there.. it was like a floating city this weekend and not enough room to swing a cat. some guy in a bay cruiser lay down anchor about 10 meters from my bow.. I saw him sweat this morning when I pulled up anchor and drfted about 2 meters from him before I could run back to the cockpit and bang it in reverse to avoid a collision.

Sounds like a good day, Radar.

Steve, we also got overtaken by a few kayaks sailing in light winds. For lunch we anchored in Milk Beach / Hermit Bay, a stone's throw from Shark Bay (what everyone, us included, calls Neilson Park). Milk Beach is a nice little spot actually, protected from North East and yesterday full of frolicking young persons.

Guests swam to beach while I cleaned up the water intakes and scraped the barnacles off the prop which were restricting me to 20K revs! Been waiting for the water to warm up. NorEaster kicked in over lunch so we could have a better sail around the harbour. Got back in time to see the delayed start of the NRL war and watch my team win! Nice day.

I bought mine up from port geographe to Bunbury on the first passage since I've owned it. She went great and still made pretty good headway even after the wind dropped right off. Still took me about 10 hrs though as we had a head wind and it eventually dropped off to 2 knots. but my mates enjoyed it and u had a blast. I love my new best friend Otto ( auto helm)

20 minutes of fairly boring footage with me having rant about half way through but the sound seems to have not exported very well so it might be a bit quite. It was this weekend sailing Moreton bay QLD

Geez they are ugly, a thirty eight foot plank with a mast and sails .... or another way ...... a thirty eight foot skiff. They should operate out of the Sydney Flying Squadron, or the NSW 18 footer league.

A tough slog upwind through the night in 25+ can be worth it. Monkey Mia over a Fat Yak!

You looked rather tense at the start! I'm glad you took a nap and relaxed a bit!

i was actually quite nervous a lot of the time . its the biggest trip I have done single handed and im quite inexperienced with only maybe 100 hours of sailing time. but I enjoyed it so thats the main thing :)

Nothing. MB was due to come off the slip at 1400, delays meant the tide was missed so she stays there till tomorrow morning.
However I had the opportunity to meet DrRog and we did a check of the boat before she enters the water tomorrow.
One thing I like about this forum is getting to meet other contributors. Hopefully, as with Cisco and Havefun and others, you become sailing mates.

Say Charriot, do you have the current way-points into Yellow Patch and could you post them please?

I went aground trying to get in last time and I determined to get in there next year.
