This 'sailor' decided to commence a passage from Southport in south east Queensland in Australia to Yeppoon, a small town on the central Queensland coast, yesterday.

The forecast was seas 9 to 10 mtrs with a storm warning with winds that had at times been recorded at 61 kts at the seaway entrance. He attempted to go out the seaway at 3pm yesterday.

It is understood that he finally changed his mind and was able to return to the Broadwater.
