Life away from sailing still goes on. I’m at Chinchilla doing another contract with the local 18 bed hospital Nice friendly place that is known for its petrified wood. Indeed if one stayed long enough it could happen to you too! One floats from a cloud of jacaranda perfume to being drunk on cattle dung as a herd stampede past, confined in a road train. My bicycle rocks as if a ferry has just passed.
Halcyon2 has been well exercised, as Werner, Sam and Nick sailed to Cato reef and back. Lots of big fish! Now to Boatworks at the Goldcoast for front and back stays.
The Lord Howe island adventure is coming soon Watch this space
