I just read an item in Sailworld about a tide calculator, Tidelines for mobile phones. It reminded me about the free tide calculator, wxtide32 (a better name would be good) which I run on my laptop. It’s free and works well. You can download it here.
Nancy Knudsen points to the Solitary Islands (off Coffs Harbour) as a place worth seeing in a recent Sail-world article. I had never considered a stop-over there, but it looks an interesting option for those traveling the NSW coast. There are even public moorings in places. You can download further information (pdf’s) from this site.
I just discovered that Alan Lucas has posted updates to both his NSW and Coral Coast Cruising Guides on his website. Alan’s website is pretty… minimalist, but it’s good to see him make the updates available to everyone online.
