Just for the record, we're back home. We crossed the Camden Haven bar without incident and had a wonderful short sail back to Crowdy Head. At sunrise the following day (Sunday), we left for Port Stephens, with the pelicans watching procedings from their special perches above the jetty lights.
Because of forecast strong winds, we left Port Stephens early (1 am)on Monday and had a relatively uneventful trip back to Pittwater. We didn't get as far north as we had planned due to the weather conditions, so we'll have an excuse to try again soon!
