Cairns - Time to move onward...

The southeast winds eventually eased and a small favourable weather window appeared to open so we departed Cairns at 0500 on the 12th of October.

The grey overcast conditions gave way to a blue sky around Fitzory Island, but with the blue sky came 15-20 knots of wind from the southeast - the direction we wanted to travel.

With a confused and uncomfortable sea state we decided to stop and explore. Fitzory Island was a great place to spend a day with a number of nice walks and even a little coral.

After an early dinner we headed to bed in preparation for the journey ahead...
