Blog Post 37 by Jon Sanders: Leaving Tasmania – West Coast bound
I depart the Tamar River – North Coast of Tasmania. It is near 2000 nautical miles to transit the Great Australian Bight, from the East Coast of Australia to Perth/Fremantle on the West Coast.
In years past one would depart on a due date and time. Say, 11am, as long as a gale was not blowing.
Get up when I feel like it; buy the newspaper and breakfast in the cafe and then casually depart.
