Left Bowen and day sailed via Cape Upstart and Cape Bowling Green  to Magnetic Island (the island that messed up Captain Cook's compass back in 1770). Not sure why but ours was OK......Stayed the night and Pete and I took the local bus round the island and ended up at Sandi's bar and restaurant for the afternoon! Left the next day and sailed to Orpheus Island for the night. Huw hooked a mahi-mahi but it got away.The Hinchenbrook channel and Island are our next stops. World Heritage listed and will be very pristine. Lots of mangroves so potentially mud crabs - and crocs too.!!
