We left Bermagui at 8am yesterday all excited for a great sail up to Jervis Bay. The light tail winds predicted turned into quite a strong breeze fair up our clacker! The waves were also building and turned into roughly 4 – 5 meters high. Freya surfed along averaging 6kn peaking at 9kn.
The autopilot decided to stop working about 6 hrs in. We went into Broulee Island to recommission it and have a quick lunch. 30 minutes saw us back out in the muck pushing on.
After a very nasty 15hrs of sailing and sloshing about we anchored in Darling Roads just inside Jervis Bay on the south side. We were hungry and tired so had a light dinner and hit the sack.
This morning we woke to see an absolutely gorgeous beach so it kind of made it worth it!
We will Easter here in JB and push on to Sydney sometime next week.
For now there are geocaches to find, swimming and exploring, and of course socializing with our sailing friends.
Happy Easter from Freya and crew xo
