Latitude Longitude Date / Time (UTC) Depth (m) Speed (kts) Course (°T) Comment
27° 57.21' S 153° 25.26' E 07 Dec 2014 04:04 None None None Anchored in 6m outside the Gold Coast VMR. Reasonably protected anchorage, except from the idiot jetskiers and power boats that blast through the channel creating wake that you could surf on. Convenient access to food shops and various other activities via the myriad of public docks along the waterway. While uncomfortable during daylight hours, it is a suitable spot as we wait out the long band of thunderstorms that are making their way north.
27° 52.39' S 153° 20.07' E 19 Nov 2014 22:37 4.0 None None After an uneventful 18 hours overnight sail we arrived at the Gold Coast and are now anchored outside 'the boatworks' at Coomera. Awaiting our haulout for annual boat chores.
26° 41.4' S 153° 7.185' E 13 Nov 2014 02:16 None None None Anchored in 3m at dawn at Mooloolaba. Looking forward to catching up with friends
25° 47.58' S 153° 27.95' E 12 Nov 2014 07:28 None 5.0 185 Running down the east side of Fraser Island with a light NE off the port quarter. Good days sailing if not a little slow. Had one strike on the fishing line just as the cheese and biscuits came out this afternoon but he got off. Expecting arrival in Mooloolaba early in the morning tomorrow where we'll anchor up in the dark and enjoy a little sleep.
24° 12.83' S 152° 33.96' E 11 Nov 2014 05:36 None 5.0 116 Underway from Pancake creek to Mooloolaba. We've decided to take the outside route around Fraser Is due to the excellent forecast for NE wind over the next few days. V. light winds so far and a fair amount of motoring but we're hoping to reach Mooloolaba by early on Thursday morning.
