Back in Aus.


Arrived back in Aus, (Bundaberg) Wednesday the 4th November about 10:30am. Overall a pretty uneventful passage with "disturbed" seas but nothing bad. The passage was our fastest from New Cal at 5 days and 5 hours. We are in the Port Bundaberg Marina till the Southerlies ease or change to Northerlies so we can get back "home" to Scarborough.
