|Carsten on Lizard island|
|Koala on Magnetic island|
We are in Owen's channel. Yesterday we walked up Lizard island to Captain Cook's lookout where he went to look for a route back out of the reef after Endeavour had been grounded near Cooktown, and found Cook's passage. 350m high and very good views. Then it was midday and we started sailing west to
get towards the peninsula that ends in Cape York. We had meant to go 50NM
but the wind was so good we then kept changing our destination until we
arrived at 9pm after 80NM. We sailed poled-out and deep reefed but it was
still very fast. Chicken curry for supper - very nice!
