Trapped by Great Keppel Island Again – It really is an Australian sailors’ favourite - Episode 41

We continue sailing Our Dreamtime south from Port Clinton, making our way past the bogey spot of our passage north at Cape manifold. It was here we suffered our only ever knockdown five months earlier and Karen was still feeling apprehensive. This time however the sailing conditions are fantastic as we enjoy a very relaxed cruise and are even joined by dolphins. Then it’s on to beautiful Great Keppel Island where a planned short stay stretches on as the island’s attractions trap us once again. It’s always hard to leave GKI.
