4000 Nautical Miles
Last week we reached a major milestone in our journey – we notched up 4000 Nautical miles since leaving Albany, WA over 3 years ago!
The day we first anchored out the front of the town of Airlie Beach we spotted a large black-hulled schooner anchored a little away from us.
Cruising in Coral
After more than three years on board Argos and sailing more than half way around Australia we have, over the last few weeks, been developing a whole new skill set - cruising around reefs!
We always knew that sailing into Brisbane would represent a major milestone for us – another major city reached – but also a gateway then for some of the most fun sailing we hope to do, up and around the Great Barrier Reef.
I have been recieving valuable tidbits of information from past owners of my Schooner Saltwind along with photos and stories of her exploits and famous guests aboard.
I appreciated the website working again so we can upload new info and updates of progress! Encourage your friends to join up today!
It's another beautiful sunny day in Coffs Harbour! We have been here just on a month now - an unscheduled, unexpected but quite glorious stop!
We arrived, limped in with a problem with the starter moor, expecting maybe to stop for a week or so to get it fixed before heading off to Iluka, our next planned stop. Ah the plans of sailors!
