Has been a while since I visited this space. Been too busy!
We returned home for 12 days. A few commitments and an opportunity to catch up with family and friends.
We left our boat in Mackay. Great service with a lift to the airport included. Thank you Cameron. Even our ‘Wilson’ survived our absence (our parsley).
Back on the water we stopped by Keswick where we tried some snorkelling (and remembered how hard it was to get back in the dinghy) and Lindeman Islands on the way to Cid Harbour where we were meeting our Melbourne friends. So sad to see yet another resort closed at Lindeman. Many memories revisited at Plantation Bay, Lindeman Island. All in our trailer sailer days.
After meeting up with our friends, we then sailed on to Gloucester Passage for the infamous Shaggers Rendezvous. Yes you may ask!
We are members of the SICYC – Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club. A club that exists purely to raise funds for prostate cancer and have fun in doing so. A four day weekend with over 150 boats all anchored off the Gloucester Passage. Great food, great venue, great weather, great music and a great few days!
So what next? Some downtime to read, write blogs and time to catch our breath …
Family on board! Off to Airlie Beach where we have collected our daughter Abbey and sister Joanne. Looking forward to some great cooking (you should have seen the shopping list and shopping bags) and time with Abbey on deck. A deckhand!
