I arrived at Sully in Adorabella, my new ride, with the intention of working on my vectors. I could have prepared them at home but thought it better to do it at the last minute & at the beach. See how well I really know this stuff.
I didn't get off to a great start as my carefully prepared tidal plan was left at home, whoops. Not to worry though, the causeway at Sully Island had just covered so it was 3 hours before high water. I could still remember my 50/90 calculations so as the tide was currently at 100% & was going to drop off in the hour & 20 minutes it would take to get to the Island I settled on 1.8 knots of tide & arrived at a bearing of 157°. It looked far too shallow an angle but I was going to stick to it & see the result.

Back on the beach & the sun finally comes out. I think we all really enjoyed this one & it was great getting Marcus out to the Islands for the first time.
Another virgin broken in ;D
