Elba in sight
Antibes to Elba overnight sail. We were able to sail all the way. Averaged 7 knots over 118 miles to Cape Corse. Level with Corsica at 5am on Saturday. Forgot all about it being Good Friday. What a night! Incredible cross sea swell and boat rocking and rolling. Our watches were 6-9pm, 11pm to 2am, then last watch up at 4.30am on Saturday to see dawn over Corsica. It was a roller coaster with boat and sea speed combined to 13 knots. Starboard tack for 160 miles. Three layers of clothing to remove between watches. Beautiful sail at dawn. Fresh wind and calm sea at about 4-5 knots. Could see Elba in the distance. After the night at winds force 6/7 and a heavy swell it was really heaven. 1986 Antibes to Sicily YCA 'French Connection' Delivery Cruise. Eight Moody 34 Yachts.

Noosa River, Queensland. The adult White-faced Heron is relatively small, pale blue-grey. The forehead, crown, chin and upper throat are white. The crown pattern is variable, with the white occasionally spreading down the neck; the variability makes identification of individuals possible. The iris may be grey, green, dull yellow or cinnamon. The regions between the eye and bill on the side of the head (lores) are black. The beak is black and often pale grey at the base. During the breeding season pinkish-brown or bronze nuptial plumes appear on the foreneck and breast, with blue-grey plumes appearing on the back. Wikipedia
