  welcome to our  Web site

We started our cruise in December 2004

Join us on our adventures sailing around Australia and hopefully further a field.

We have a twenty year dream and we invite you to check our website and see how we are progressing.  CURRENT LOCATION


Ten plus years ago we had a dream, to travel extensively, be self sufficient and see as much as we could before we got too old.

The choice of transport was a last minute change as we both used to get very seasick, but are now enjoying our new home and the opportunities it offers.

Gone Cruising  highlights

For interest

Sailing lets us visit places that others do not normally see - our highlight was anchoring off Pearson Island, S.A. where we were the only humans on the island along with seals, penguins, birds, rock wallabies, etc.

Sailing is a great way to meet people.  Sailing makes one appreciate how much waste we have in normal land based life. - we are self-sufficient in power and can only fit what can be used onto the boat.

Sailing teaches us patience- it is not the destination but the journey that is important. -Our highlight was the Great Australian Bight, I keep pinching myself that we actually have achieved this.
