Into Jervis Bay

Position; Hole in the Wall, Jervis Bay NSW S35 08.0 E150 44.6

We surfed into Jervis Bay this evening after 17houres pounding into the wind and rain down from Sydney. The wind was shifty all day and we forced to tack back and fourth clocking up 148nm on a trip that shouldn’t have been more that 80nm.The last few nautical miles into Jervis bay were painfully slow in confused seas at the base of the cliffs and after arriving and shaking off the salt crystals! we managed to find a mooring in the dark and had a nice hot meal.
With more of the same weather forecasted for tomorrow we plan on spending Wednesday on the mooring before pushing south to Bermagui, Victoria then on to the Bass straight.
