Finally sailed our very beautiful Sydney Harbour. Some iPhone footage In Link below. 4 hours return from Rose bay to Anzac Bridge in mostly consistent 8- 10 km winds. That's one off the bucket
list but will return again and again no doubt. Big Ferries are polite enough to blast their enormous horns plenty of distance for small sailing craft.
Highly recommend this journey. Go pro footage is coming. Used two 16 gig cards and 1 and a half batteries.

I’ve been do’n this AI stuff for 6 or so years and still haven’t done Sydney Harbour. It’s just that it’s so far away. :roll: ( that's a sarcastic eye roll )

Last Saturday from Rose Bay to Balmain return between 11am and 3.30. Yes I was happy to have a wide berth all the way.

Here's a 360 degree just west of the Harbour bridge at Walsh Bay. Getting the feel of the manoeuvrability of the AI. So agile. Will be installing the trampolines to maximise wind torque.

Forty minutes from a city of 5 million and not a boat or person in sight - real peace:
