Nubeena to Schouten

Between the last post and  now we stayed another night at beautiful Nubeena, with its Lucky Ducks Cafe for a coffee, post office and supermarket for all the essentials. Here we also made phone contact, ship to shore, with fellow cruisers Richard and Wendy. From Nubeena we sailed, in winds light to variable, to King George Sound Murdunna, for another calm nights sleep. On the Wed 8th we left Murdunna at 0830 headed through Denison canal and out through Marion Narrows past the surfers on a clean break at The Boneyard. A single tack of broad reach brought us to Passage Beach, Schouten Passage at about 1800 48 nm later.
