Sandy Straits to Mooloolaba

After leaving Bundaberg, we ventured into the Great Sandy Straits for the night, anchored around Elbow Point Friday night then up again at 0430hrs Saturday for the journey South via the Wide Bay Bar. The bar was behaving well with no white water and a clearance of about 4 meters of water under the keel. The rest of the trip to Mooloolaba was uneventful and saw us arrive at Kawana Waters Marina at 1630hrs. Next leg will be to Scarborough Marina when the Southerlies abate.
