Family Xmas Party Flyer

Roger and Avril Ferdinando elatedly returned to RGYC on Tuesday, November 21, after successfully completing  an 11-day circumnavigation of Bass Strait in their Adams-Radford Magellan 42 Maggie May.

It was their first major offshore jaunt and their first crossings of the Strait under sail.
Crew and mentor Ed Featherston notched his 55th Bass Strait crossing under sail ... and says he is looking forward to January when he will crew with Trevor Brown in his Noelex 30 Fleurieu Warrior on its return trip from the Tamar River to Geelong.

Maggie May covered more than 700 nautical miles, with the longest leg a 140nm overnighter from Grassy, King Island, to Geelong in 24 hours at an average of 5.83 knots.

The first leg, from Queenscliff to Refuge Cove, Wilsons Promontory, included a “black swan” event.

Beating into 2.5m swells, the new 40kg Rockna anchor severed its lashings, shook the chain brake loose and took 60m of chain and 60m of rope 47m to the bottom about 5nm off Cape Patterson, near Wonthaggi.
Only a knot at the end of the rope saved the lot.

After securing the rope end and being anchored for the rest of the night, it took 3-1/2 hours after dawn to recover the Rockna.
Maggie May spent a day in Refuge Cove before sailing to Deal Island, then next day put up a 7.5knot average on the 12-hour leg to George Town.
Beauty Point to Spiers Nook on Three Hummock Island took 15hours of downwind sailing, with another fast passage from there to Grassy.

The craypot borrowed from Bill Newman went down twice overnight, with only a starfish caught, and the three sharks caught on the rod were released as unidentifiable and probably inedible!
With a high pressure system holding an easterly pattern over the Strait, Maggie May had only a day and a half of beating, with 6-1/2 days of two-sail reaching for the trip.

Bass Strait was benign.
