Improved weather this morning. I got through Hells Gate quite easily. I was worried about currents and wind which might make it very difficult. It was all good, and I got through with no problems. The great weather continued and I faced a gentle headwind. I got past Cow Island and Long island (which is shorter than Cow Island).
Then the wind changed and became a strong headwind dropping my speed to 2-3 kmh. I struggled across the coorong to the peninsula side. I decided it was too strong to battle against, and I would get up early tomorrow and try and get going early in the morning calm, and cover as much distance before the afternoon sea breeze started. I am 30 km away from Salt Creek, I hope to get there Saturday Night.
