Happy New Year

The sunshine has finally come out in Tassie for a walk down through Salamanca to the Taste Festival, where all the local food and wine was being served. We spent the afternoon eating and drinking whilst listening to a variety of musicians playing to the crowds enjoying the sunshine and watching the yachts enter Constitution Dock after a long race. The afternoon ended with us walking down to look at the Maxi yachts in various states of disarray, all trying to clean up after a much longer Sydney to Hobart race than they thought they would have, some even ran out of food 24hrs prior!!

The following morning as Nathan and Nicole slept peacefully we headed for the supermarket to restock our pantry with supplies for a week out around Tasman Peninsular. Alan pushed a wheel barrow full of groceries back to the boat as Nathan was surfacing , rubbing his eyes. We said our Happy New Year wishes to our friends at the marina and headed south to Cape Raoul. The light south easterly winds allowed the tailend of the Sydney Hobart Fleet to fly their spinnakers up the Derwent, a spectacular sight. The amazing pipe structures of the Cape showed a variety of colours in the setting sun as we made our way east to clear the land before heading into Port Arthur for the night.
