Get a move on Pete at 1550 on Sat 16 the tracker has you having lunch on a beach near Port Sorell. A great achievement well done.

Hi Pete & Andy,
went out to Lowhead this morning to get some video/photos of you sailing past but you were too fast. The internet must have been slow because one minute you were at 5 mile bluff then you had past the lighthouse. I bet you has some fun today, did you actually have to paddle?

Mate, If you plan to stop again before the Tamar River, give my sister Robin a call. She has a shack at Lulworth which you might be able to doss down in.

Well done, both of you. As I see "Google Earth" it looks to be down hill going west, but I don't expect the paddling will feel that way!! Best wishes, Michael

Hi Pete,
You are camped exactly where we camped last year on a trip down the east coast. When you get a little further north the tidal currents will start to kick in. When you cross Ringarooma Bay, head for Waterhouse Island, named by Bass and Flinders,the first europeans to circumnavigate Tasmania or Van Diemens Land as it was then called. The owner of the island, Clive Roberts, will probably allow you to use the restored shearers quarters that has beds and a toilet. Mention the Maatsuyker Canoe Club as he frequently allows us to have our AGM on the island.

Just so pleased that you got to see Freycinet and particularly Wineglass Bay in all its glory - the most beautiful bay in the world! Now you know why I took the 3 peaks race there. DO take Tracey there, it is just the best. Enjoy Bicheno, Scamander, St Helens, Binnalong Bay, Banks Strait etc - my much missed home waters.

Hi Pete/Andy.  Following your journey with interest from home in Plymouth UK.  I will be in Launceston (Tas) on 10 Feb prior to doing Overland Track so should be near you at your current progress.  Met Pete many years ago when he gave a talk at Plym YC.  Also been on board Spirit when at Plymouth Classics.  Maybe a third contact coming!!  Keep paddling, keep safe.  Don

Hi Pete and Andy!Glad your on your way again after your Dooking. Bet that was scary for a minute ot two? Anyway like falling off a horse best to get back in the saddle as soon as aye! I was thinking, unlike being in a sail boat when you really tired and its rough you can usually "heave to"!! But in a kayak when its rough you have to keep paddling to be stable and safe?? You need to have a big reserve of energy i s'pose. Anyway looks like your both going well now and meeting up with some great people. Take care Fellas. Paul
