Thanks gents. We're now pushing well off shore to the Percy Isles and will soon be out of comms range. Should regain comms in about 24 hours. Percy's are remote and beautiful. :D

Ha. Now back in range in the Whitsunday Islands. Have been out of range for these past couple of weeks in remote anchorages, enjoying the solitude of no email, internet, phone etc. Lots of reading. Relied on HF radio for weather.

In Cid Harbour tonight.

AT&T has good cell reception on Cape Sable...so I switched to Verizon! Always good to unplug for a while, especially in a remote place.

Thanks cape man (yes for me unplugging every now and then is vital for sanity), Jeff, Barra Man, and Fuzz. :D

Sparking 30nm downhill sail to Gloucester Passage between Gloucester Island (background in pic) and Cape Gloucester (foreground in pic) today.

We're enjoying a beautiful and sheltered anchorage in the Passage tonight. :D
