Shy Alba reached Cygnet about 7:30pm yesterday. Laurence and Phil had a lovely BBQ dinner ashore. The water was like glass. Such a contrast to the last week or so. This morning was a slow start as departure was timed for the rising tide to continue up the Huon River to Franklin.
After feeling the heave of the ocean swell for the last 12 days, our intrepid team have steamed into the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and are cruising gently along in calm water. A little while ago they passed Kettering and are now heading to Cygnet to spend the night. A BBQ dinner is planned with friends ashore. Then tomorrow, on a rising tide, they will complete the journey to Franklin. Click on the heading to see the photo of the chart plotter showing their route.
