We finally did it. Across the Gulf of St Vincent in South Australia.
We went from West to East due to the forecast winds.
Total of 31.4 NM in 7.5 hours, average 4.2 kts and maximum of 6.9 kts.
We had a 14 page risk management plan and 4 page passage plan which the coast guard had.
Rob's TI was just the best fit out to travel such a distance in off shore waters, much of which was out of sight of land.
All safety gear was there, including EPIRB and PLBs, two radios etc and my Navionics, see track below.
We had our go parameters that prevented us from going across the week before.
If anyone is planning an adventurous trip and would like a copy of both plans, we can remove the personal bits and place a link on this site.
The only eventful part was that I had the helm for the first hour or so when the wind was up.
There were .5m waves and 1m swell and I had a ball surfing down the swell.
When Rob took the helm, the wind died so I had all the fun.
I'm looking forward to our Hobie Dealer, Binks Marine, organizing a crossing in the future.
