COFFS HARBOUR, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA: 25th MARCH 2005

Coffs Harbour is a coastal city located on the east coast of New South Wales about 291 nmiles north of Sydney … 240 nmiles south of Brisbane.

Took one of the batteries weighing 158 pounds out of Tsunami for charging and testing; man that is one heavy sucker. I was lucky to have made good friends with a couple sailing another Cat (Bill and Barbara of  `SV Bilbara’) and Bill was happy to help me lift it out.  I paid to have the battery people help me put it back in. Marina berth cost $33.00 per night, but necessary to pay for a berth to be able to get the battery off the yacht.

* Coffs Harbour Marina … quality … 6 out of 10! (Photo compliments of Wikipedia!) *

From Coffs I sailed to Yamba/Illuka and the most perfectly protected harbour you could wish for.  Yamba marks the entrance to the Clarence River up which you can sail 60 miles inland.  I will come back one day when I have more time (I was rushing to met Arianne in Brisbane) and spend a couple of weeks exploring this region.
