The plan is to circumnavigate Bass Strait, between Saturday the 2nd March to Sunday 17th March. Check out the November Albatross Page 29-32 for the Cruise Plan, summarised below:
The direction of travel, clockwise or anti clockwise, will depend on the prevailing weather at the time. The intention is to visit the Tamar or Port Sorrell, Rocky Cape, Stanly, The Fleurieu Group including Three Hummock & Hunter Islands, Refuge Cove - Wilsons Promontory, the Kent Group including Deal & Erith islands, and the Furneaux Group.
Vessels will rendezvous on the 2nd of March somewhere between Flinders Island and the Tamar River. The rendezvous anchorage and direction of circumnavigation will hopefully be announced to all participants around the 27th of February.
The start date allows one week for vessels participating in the East Coast Cruise to make their way to the Rendezvous on the 2nd March. Vesels not participating in the East Coast Cruise will make their way to the Rendezvous as appropriate.
The circumnavigation will finish on the 17th March between Flinders Island and the Tamar. Vessels may then make their way in company back down the East Coast or alternatively spend more time in the area (Gradiva is Likely to spend more time in the area)
Scott will facilitate vessels linking up to cruise in company for the passages up and down the East Coast. Vessels must be well prepared for all possible conditions throughout the cruise. Cruise Contacts are Scott and Rachel Poulter onboard Gradiva on 0419 513 983
Feel free to phone or email to discuss the cruise at any time. More information will be made available to those registered during coming months.
