Mandurah to Bunbury

Hi all

I arrived last night after just over 11 hours at sea in my top hat :)

Here is a little video of the trip :)

Had a steady easterly the whole way which sped me up by about 4 hours.

Hi Stonedpirate ,

I watched that YouTube video , correct me if i am wrong , though you seem to do a lot of motor sailing . As I heard the sound of your outboard right throughout that video .

Motor sailed the whole way. 4 knots engine alone. 3 knots under sail. 5-6 knots with both plus burned only 17 litres of petrol in 11 hours
