Southport to Lord Howe Island to Hobart / 1300 Nm / 13 Days / CAT 1 Coastal Passage
This offshore passage is a 1,300 Nm passage from Southport on sunny Queensland’s Gold Coast, to Lord Howe Island 360 Nm to the south east and then 940 Nm to Hobart; Australia’s southern most port.
This is a unique opportunity to stop at Lord Howe Island, meet the locals and take in some of the sights of life on an island less than 7 Nm in length. Lord Howe Island is surrounded by amazing sea life and steep Jurassic like cliff faces at the southern end. When we depart Lord Howe Island we’ll head 15 Nm south east past Ball’s Pyramid, a rock rising 551 metres out of the sea from the ocean floor, before we turn SW for the ocean passage to our planned Tasmania anchorages as we sail down the rugged Tasmanian coastline on the passage to Hobart.
We will plan around the weather and select from stopover options that include;
Lord Howe Island
The route we take and recommended anchorages are based on careful research, professional meteorological advice and detailed local sailing knowledge and subject to COVID Border restrictions.
