The more the merrier Stevo. I would really like to have a go from the Hawksbury Bridge west towards Wismans Ferry. We could launch in at Patonga or Brooklyn as before or even that carpark on the northern side of the bridge on the west side of the highway. There don't look to be as many beaches to pull into as with our last trip, but still the scenery is pretty spectacular. An overnighter would also be good. I'll just plant the seed. Someone else can pick a date.
That's Deerubbun Reserve in Mooney Mooney Slaughter. That would be the place to launch for a trip upriver. I've paddled it in my pre-AI days, up to the head of Popran Creek, near where I live. It's a nice trip, but the breezes might be a bit erratic - the river narrows and passes through hills. If we were heading in that direction, a sail down Berowra Waters might be good. I've never done it, but I've been there by car and it's pretty spectacular, as you say (like the rest of the Hawkesbury/Broken Bay). It's 17km from Mooney to the Berowra Waters Ferry, so the round trip would be a longish one, considering a lot of it could be pedalling. Alternatively, Spencer is just 12km from Mooney. Just a thought.
