We enjoyed a lovely morning on Moreton Bay yesterday. We took the girls around past Redcliffe on the boat to witness the start of the Brisbane to Gladstone yacht race. Fantastic weather and Lizzie enjoyed her first real boating outing (apart from the pre-Christmas canal tour and another very )short trip. She had a great time, and the faster and noisier the boat the more she seemed to relish it. On the other hand, Louisa, who has spent more time on the boat with Dad, suffered from sea sickness. I think it was so much time not moving, waiting for the start of the race, rather than the usual full speed to Moreton Island. Plus the wash from so many other spectator craft.
Below is the race leader Ichi Ban who raced right past us - very exciting!
