Across the Wide Bay Bar to the Great Sandy Straits with fearsome lightning storms

  Series 2 Ep 55 WATCH THE VIDEO HERE 

We were sad to leave the beautiful sand lagoon anchorage at Double Island Point but sailing north in Spring, we need to make use of every weather window available, so it was another crossing of the ever-changing Wide Bay Bar. We have never followed the same route twice over this notorious piece of water because the sand and channels are constantly moving.

A hard place to leave

Rogue swells on the Wide Bay Bar tend to create excitement

Then it was on to Gary’s Anchorage on the inside of K’Gari (Fraser Island) to sit out heavy rain, contrary winds and a very scary but spectacular lightening storm. It wasn’t all bad though as we did catch some very tasty crabs between the rain and in Our Galley, Karen cooks up fantastic, Persian chicken dish.

Gary's Anchorage at K'Gari (Fraser Island) is a favourite of ours.

When it rains in Queensland it pours.
