Long Weekend in Longreach, Rottnest

We departed Fremantle Yacht Club at 9.45 am with wind speed at 8-10 knots and enjoyed a broad reach averaging 4-5 knots. Our maximum speed was 5.9 knots. We experienced a bit of weather helm and thought maybe next time we would ease the sheets as the main sail may have been over sheeted. We used about 50 amps having only used the motor for exiting the marina and entering Longreach anchorage. The regen seemed to provide 4-5 amps but we weren’t sure what the solar panels were feeding into the system so we ran the generator for a couple of hours while we went ashore.
