I arrived in Airlie Beach, the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands at just after 9am. It hadn't stopped raining for the entire trip to Airlie, I checked into the hostel, which should have a beautiful view of the bay, but due to the rain you couldn't really see it! Anyway, I had to go out in the rain to what exists of the town to find Backpackers World Travel so that I could pay the rest of the sailing trip money. I asked if it was possible to change the date I wanted to go on, but was told I couldn't.

Luckily, for me anyway, my trip on the Thursday aboard Matador was cancelled due to not enough people going on it. So I had the option to go on Friday on a different boat or on Sunday aboard Matador. I decided to go for leaving on Friday, as it was a longer trip for the same price and I should get some better weather by Sunday! Also, I didn't know what I would do in Airlie as there isn't really anywhere to go, and the shops get boring after a while.
