June 5 - Lizard Island

Position: S14deg39.6min/E145deg27.0min We departed Yorkeys Knob and had to motor sail the entire way here in very light following winds. The good news is that our autopilot seems to be working OK, so that's a big plus. The scenery coming here was beautiful, and we could imagine Capt. Cook in his vessel Endeavor along about the same track. The names are so historical; amongst them: Cape Tribulation, Endeavor Reef, Cooktown and the Endeavor River, Cape Flattery, and where we're anchored, Lizard Island. We'll launch the dinghy to go exploring tomorrow, and try to find where Cook viewed the reef to see where he could get Endeavor out.
