Day 3: Dover to Alonnah

After a great night at the Far South Camp at Dover, (with more great food thanks to new cook Daniel) the fleet left early on a beautiful summer-like morning. It was so amazing to see the sun again!  As this was not going to last, there had to be a quick get-away since the next front was due at noon.
The sail across to Bruny was great – perfect sailing weather – until the front arrived on cue. The last few kms were a little bumpy but nothing compared to the seas we had to contend with coming from Recherche. The rowers, found it a little messy approaching Satellite Island but all got in safely and were treated to the sight of Boxer bearing down on us under her huge sails though she only had a fraction of her sails up. 
Some yachts chose the stay off Satellite Is and won’t be coming ashore and a bus load of  folk went off the visit the Bligh Museum at Adventure Bay. Camping near the pub should make for a happy evening and set us up for another early start to Simpson’s Bay tomorrow.
