If our first few days at sea were rather rough, the last two legs along the Victorian Coast have been fun, with no sign of sea sickness and some good sailing, rather than motor-sailing. We are over the hump!
We have completed our sail along the Victorian Coast. Since the last post, we went from Cleeland Bight on Phillip Island to just inside Port Phillip Heads, where we anchored for the night. Rushing through The Rip at 10.5 knots speed was an experience, even on a calm day, and our overnight anchorage at Point Nepean was safe but a bit rowdy! The next day we crossed over to Point Lonsdale to follow the West coast, passing awfully close to our beach home at Jan Juc and to Aireys Inlet, and finally arriving at the fishing harbour of Apollo Bay on Sunday night just as the rain and strong wind set in. We are hiding here for a few days from a strong Westerly. The next leg will be dead South across Bass Strait to King Island, where we probably won’t have internet service.
Seeing iconic and familiar stretches of coast from the sea offers a different perspective. We see the cliffs, the lighthouses, the capes, the surf breaks in a way not too many people get to see them. So for this post, we thought we would share our perspective of the Victorian Coast through a series of panoramic shots. We hope you will like our views from Take It Easy.
