Marcy headed for Cape York

Since Cooktown we've enjoyed snorkeling and walks ashore at Lizard Island and some fantastic sailing too. The high winds have continued and yesterday (Thursday) we sailed over 80 miles in 11 hours. Sailing with a tail wind inside the reef can be very fast. This morning we left Flinders Islands just north of Cape Melville in light winds and are enjoying a 5 knot sail with full main and spinnaker. The strong wind warnings continue for the coast but for now we've found some lighter winds and very
calm seas. The sun is out and all is well aboard Marcy.
