After a wild night of gusts in Twofold bay the Freespirits finally departed Eden for Bermagui. Despite the sometime dangerous and damaging Eden wharf, we enjoyed our experience at Eden in particularly the peace and quiet of East Boyd Bay.
Leaving Eden for Bermagui with the winds light to almost nothing at all, we eventually gave up on trying to sail and once more employed the iron mainsail. We made good time and arrived in the early afternoon to a warm and friendly greeting from the locals.
Shortly after we were joined in the raft-up alongside the fishermans co-op wharf by Melbourne yacht Mustang Sally. We shared a drink with its crew Mark and Dianne in a ‘sundowner’ overlooking the small but very picturesque Bermagui harbour. Delightful. Tomorrow we go and explore our new surroundings.
