power of nature

After another great race to Hobart on Kialoa II, during our delivery back to Sydney, we pulled into Twofold Bay in Eden to get out of the Nor’ easter and wait for the southerly next morning.

After 48 hours across Bass Strait and no updated news of the bushfires, we were confronted with this sight of the Woodchip Mill fire with Australia’s largest navel ship HMAS Adelaide standing by in the bay evacuating residents and delivering supplies to communities on the South Coast of NSW.

As darkness fell, I captured this incredible sight of Sydney Hobart entrant ‘Business As Usual’ sailing into Twofold Bay with HMAS Adelaide and the Woodchip Mill fire raging under heavy rain.
