Yachts need wind!


It was a perfect day - but not for yachties - they need to have their sails filled with wind to push them along. For us on the spectator boats it was a perfect day - no wind, smooth seas, no rocking of the boat!

The start of the race from Brisbane to Gladstone was delayed for almost an hour - not enough wind we were told. It gave us a good opportunity to look at the yachts up close.

When the wind did come in - it was just gentle - enough to flutter the flags, and off they went. This photo of the yacht Earthling, with calm water give some idea of the weather at the time.
