The Port Albert yacht Club's annual Queens Birthday weekend Cruise, will be going again (Weather permitting) on the 9th to the 11th June 2012. The cruise departs from Port Welshpool and then follows the eastern shore of Wilsons Promontory to Refuge Cove a distance of around 26 nautical miles. The cove is a beautiful ancorage with sand bottom in the Wilsons Promontory National Park it has crystal clear water and is surounded by spectacular mountain scenery. Participating vessels should be larger TS (20 feet +) & equipped for this coastal passage, vessels should carry an EPIRB, coastal flare pack (2 Orange, 2 Red hand held plus 1 parachute red flare), a marine band radio VHF or 27 Meg, a second anchor may also be useful. A secure yard is available at Port Welshpool for Tows & trailers if you wish, but members have never experienced any trouble at the ramp car park. For further details you can contact the PAYC Secretary, rjdavies@activ8.net.au .

I took my Dennis to Tin Mine Cove for an overnighter soon after I got it.

I remember that something went wrong with one of my rudder pintles and my old Chrysler two stroke outboard wouldn't start for me; I ended up sailing back from the north east point (Singapore point?) steering with the dead outboard and sail trim, until I got close enough to Port Welshpool that my motor decided to work again.

Refuge cove is one of the places I want to go that I felt the Dennis wasn't adequate for. Maybe I'll need to get myself an epirb.

This was a really great adventure. Many thanks to Rob & Jenny on Dragon Fly for guiding us all safely around the sand bars. A big thank you to Ian on Creme' Caramel for inviting me to go along on his fine boat. Always good to learn a trick or two about setting sails including a short sail with the spinnaker flying, even though the slight wind was more from starboard than stern. We will have to do this one again in warmer weather.

Great company. It was good to get onto a sailing yacht and sail. We all had a good time.

Hi Wanton,

I am so relieve that you come back, I was really worried, especially with the heavy fog. With all the responsibility on your shoulders, we could not manage without you if you get stranded or ship wrecked for few days.

On serious note I am glad you had a good time, Ian is a great skipper and I wish I was there too. I hope to have more time with both of you next sailing season.

Regards Frank


Hi Ed, I am glad you had a good sail it is the one which is not always good this time of the year and you probably missed Helen’s cooking.

Hope to see you and the kids on Cup day in Paynesville.

Regards Jana

Thanks for the kind sentiments Jana and Frank. I will want to do the Perry River Run again next season. Ian and me really enjoyed ourselves when we took the opportunity to solo sail our respective boats from Paynesville to Perry River. The sail back in a white out and tacking into a brisk breeze was demanding but exhilarating at the same time. We reminisced that sail when we where at Refuge Cove. Both of us a little unsure about how our respective admirals will enjoy such a long stint on the water. We guessed that in company it would be OK.

It was good to see the participants in the Refuge cruise had a good weekend. Thanks for coming along. For myself and crew it just wasn't long enough. Glad you had a good weekend Ed and we may see another Careel down this way when it's warmer. Now it's time to head to the Riviera in the east. Thought I'd add some photos, Cheers.Jibsy.
