We arrived at queenscliffe at 1.15pm and BV told us we would have to pay to go on the 2.00pm ferry or take the bus back home. We waited for the 2.00pm ferry and the ferry company didn't charge us as they knew we had paid as we were wearing the wrist bands. Its not that there is no ferry after 1.00pm, its just that if you get the 2.00m ferry, there are no drink stations for the last 100km and no directions on the road. For the record, we made it back together to the finish line safely at 8.30pm, riding the last 45min in the dark. We would have made it in by dark except for more tacks on the road just after Sorrento and one more puncture. In a larger group sharing the wind (say 6 riders), you could even make it back by the offical finish after catching the 2.00pm ferry.
