An Unexpected Night Passage to Burnett Heads – Our Tips for Staying Safe Sailing at Night - Ep 42

We leave Great Keppel Island in the early morning darkness with the plan of sailing south to Pancake Creek but when we get there the anchorage is very full of boats. So we decide to keep going into the night clocking up 131 nautical miles to reach Burnett Heads.

Along the way we explain what we do to stay safe sailing at night.

If you would like to support our video productions you can do it from less than the price of a coffee. The funds help us buy better camera and audio equipment to improve the quality of our shows. We particularly want some better microphones to help with the audio in windy conditions. Go to our Patreon site to learn more.
