The route so far

Made it to Woodwark Bay just north of Airlie Beach today. We left Montes at almost the top of the tide this morning and had a smooth trip through the Gloucester Passage.
The landslides at Hideaway Bay stood out starkly as we left the passage and headed east, however the outgoing tide became a little choppy so after passing the aptly named Saddleback Island and George Point we ducked southwards and tucked in behind Olden Island for a coffee, lunch and a bit of mud crabbing (with no success however).
It's a very pretty place with a few bommies noted as we went ashore in the dinghy.
Anchoring the dinghy forward and rear to avoid beaching.
We set off again mid afternoon sailing in the lee of the small islands with the Code Zero pulling us along beautifully.
Our overnight anchorage - and maybe tomorrow's rest day - is at the bottom end of Woodwark Bay, surrounded by mountains and bird calls, it looks like a nice spot to explore.
