The main reason for the changes are to reduce the passage on the first day. The organisers of the Australian Wooden Boat Festival prefer vessels to remain on site until Monday afternoon making it difficult for us to get an early start and raising the likelihood that we would be facing a long haul into a sea breeze on the first day out. The new schedule starts with a short passage of 7 NM to South Arm. If you have made any plans around the old published route, please note these changes and modify your plans to fit.
