Well we actually arrived into Sydney Harbour at 11pm on Tuesday night and headed for the closest anchorage (Manly) and a good night's sleep. The trip down was reasonable, a few hours motoring to start with and then sailing the rest of the way.
We spent the day in and around Manly yestersay as our marina berth in downtown Sydney wasn't booked until today and so at 9am this morning we pulled up the anchor to head deeper into the harbour, chased by a P&O cruise ship (we gave way to it!) before rounding a headland and having our first view of the opera house and bridge! Wow! What a perfect end to an incredible trip, to see two such iconic structures and to sail underneath one of them! We made it, yeah!!
We're now in the CYCA Marina, home of the Sydney to Hobart rally, and will spend four days here exploring and relaxing. Bring it on!
