We spent Saturday night at Hobarts Beach, a National Park campground, next to a back-lake and a short walk through dense banksia and tea-tree scrub to the sea. We saw several enormous sea eagles and the Walagoot Lake yacht club was having a regatta.
In the afternoon, we returned to Eden to farewell Finnian. She was 'at home', tying things up and other things down. The wind was a warm north westerly, pretty good for square rig sailing towards Tasmania. They have a 3 hour on/ three hour off watch system, with all hands on deck for major sail changes. She is sleeping in a hammock, below deck with 14 others - only the captain has a space to himself. Then it was off home, to keep a close eye on the BOM (Bureau of Meteorology website)
