After three nights in Bunbury it was time to move on. Bunbury has great facilities and a very safe anchorage but you can have too much of a good thing. Besides, Geographe Bay has far more to offer sailors. We are now at 33 34.05S 115 05.22E, anchored in 4.5m over sand in crystal clear 23 degrees C water.
We departed Koombana Bay at 0545 this morning. We were originally planning to anchor off Meelup Beach but on arrival decided to stop at the small bay a little further west - between Gannet Rock and Point Picquet. The passage took 8 hours and we logged 38nm. Here are two tracks and our speed profile...

Before describing the passage, here are a few pictures from our stay in Koombana Bay...
Overall it was a great daysail in very flat water. It gave us a chance to experiment with sheet block positions for the new yankee headsail. We think we've got that sorted now. It's a lovely sail.
Arriving at Point Picquet was amazing. The water is very clear - at least 20m visibility. We found very few places in Indonesia with better visibility.

Trust all's well where you are!
