August explorations

August was a busy month with great weather. We had fun exploring Nara inlet with fellow cruisers then back at the marina for Airlie race week. We then went back to Nara with friends visiting from Brisbane before heading north, stopping off at anchorages along the way to Montes in the gloucester passage for the SICYC rendezvous. Back in Airlie for r & r before the fun run and heading back south.
