Burnett Heads

Farewelled Fraser Island and sailed north-west to Burnett Heads. Well, I say sailed, but it was more of a motor because again there was virtually no wind. At one point the seas were dead calm and flat.

As we neared Bargara, we considered anchoring as it is such a lovely area, but the wind decided to kick in a little and the shore looked a bit too rocky. Instead, we pulled out the screecher (quickly becoming our favourite sail!) and in 9-10 knots of breeze, Windana was sailing at 5 knots. We yachties do go on about these things a lot, but in our case, we should be excused, because we are still getting used to Windana behaving so well! Arrived at Burnett Heads mid-afternoon and anchored just past the sugar terminal. We spoke to Keith and Patty (Speranza), who are in the Bundaberg Port marina to haul out before they head off to spend Christmas with family. We had a quiet BBQ tea and then played "Game of Life" with the kids - who I suspect are determined to drag us through the complete contents of the games locker!
