Having to wait for the storm to pass we didn’t leave Melbourne until 11 am the next day. Lacking the blue skies from yesterday sitting out on deck 11 was a little chilly to say the least. You don’t realise how vast Port Phillip bay is until you sail out in daylight and yet the channel to exit is so narrow that a pilot boards for a short distance to get you out the heads… As we started to enter the bight the swell of the sea was becoming more apparent, the feeling which is like being on an aeroplane with really bad turbulence. With the threat of another low coming through, the seas seemed to have settled down a little over the last couple of days, could this be the calm before the next storm. Only time will tell.
