MISSIONARY BAY TO DOUBLE BAY, QUEEN CHARLOTTE SOUND

Sunday lunch time I departed from Missionary Bay. Weather still not nice with low cloud and rain showers. Destination is Double Bay on Queen Charlotte Sound. This bay looks like providing good shelter from the south and is on the route to Pelorus Sound, my final destination.

A stiff wind took us out of the Tory Channel and into Queen Charlette Sound. I sailed with the staysail as it was only a seven-mile trip, the breeze giving us plenty of speed. Once around the corner into Queen Charlotte Sound the wind became fluky and we motored for the last couple of miles into the anchorage.

By six in the evening Truce was anchored in Missionary Bay, there was one other boat in the bay hanging on a mooring. It’s very quiet in the sounds, hardly any pleasure traffic as everybody is in anti-coronavirus lockdown. I saw a couple of Interisland ferries moving between Picton and Wellington.

This evening I am looking forward to a good sleep to catch up on the last couple of nights disturbed slumbers.
