I had decided to leave Spirit in Albany until there was a good window of weather to bring her back.
It took nearly 2 months before the right weather pattern formed. Finally about mid June everything looked good and I brought Spirit home, having an almost perfect sail back to Fremantle.
Hugging the coast to stay out of the Leeuwin current it took two days and seven hours for the return trip which was under half the time to get to Albany.
Thank you to Andrew Hammond, Rockingham Council CEO, for the use of his boat pen while Spirit was in Albany.
