An early start to watch competitors leave Queensland Cruising Yacht Club for the start of the Brisbane to Gladstone.

Others decided to watch from on the water.

I didn’t see this flight on the schedule. I wonder if there’s a good haul of SC?

A few more as the Good Friday crowds wave farewell to Brisbane to Gladstone competitors.

A conga line of yachts headed for the start line:

This is a seriously difficult way to get to Gladstone. He’s stepping up and down which appears to be propelling him somehow.

“South Passage” is a lovely old sailing ship that operates out of Shorncliffe and teaches young people to sail, but also life skills, confidence, leadership etc.

Triabunna footy club, Good Friday Fish Fest.

As Triabunna is a fishing port, and most of the fishermen belong to the footy club, it's always a great feed.

$15 admission gets you lunch AND dinner tonight, if you want to return.

Gotta love the country!

I love heeland cooows.
And what on earth is that over cooked square thing? Chips look good though. :)
Fish cakes! I could only manage half of one but it was really nice, had actual chunks of cod in it rather than just being all mushy.

And yes, I instantly thought of you when I saw those cows so took the photo for you :p

Thank you for the cooows. They are gorgeous. And pleased it wasn’t a Mars Bar. One thing you do well over there is cod and chips. Yum.
How’re you both feeling - must be a bit better if you’re tackling fried food. :)

I seem to have picked up a cold or something similar, the flight up was not very pleasant. At the moment can barely breathe (nothing a few puffs of Ventolin can't help with!) and my head feels like it's going to explode :( Very remote here though and being Good Friday think I'm limited for options and with these symptoms would probably just be told to jog on anyway....... still getting cramps and pains, but yeah.

super pic's cap'n.. I used to sail out to watch the start but it was all a bit pyrrhic as they left my little scrap of sail behind in a few minutes.
Many years later, now with a fiesty stinkboat , I joined the fuel guzzling multitudes and followed the leaders for a way.

The first time we flew SYD - JNB we had great views but every time since, nada. Flight tracks have taken us too far north. Great photos. :)
