Return Journey has Started
After 12 months residing at Franklin Shy Alba has started her journey back to Sydney. The A team, comprising Laurence, Dallas and Phil set off yesterday.
The journey started with a leisurely trip down the Huon River then North within the d’Entrecasteaux Channel. From the top of Bruny Island the course took them out into Storm Bay in the direction of Port Arthur. Half way across Storm Bay a southerly change came through with winds of 30 to 40kts. All systems worked well, the crew were warm, dry and happy!
Last night Shy Alba came to anchor in Safety Cove within Port Arthur. On the way in they met the giant cruise ship “Carnival Legend” coming out. A grand sight.
After speaking to Laurence on the phone last night the crew sat down to a big dinner.
