Having had a superb time in New Caledonia, particularly in the Isle of Pines, we arrived safely at the Rivergate Marina, Brisbane just over a week ago. The passage was uneventful with two days of motoring but comfortable sailing and the gennaker flying for much of the time. We are now located at the Royal Queensland Yacht Squadron in Manly and will update with photos in a few days. It's been busy with varnishing and working on the engine since arriving so no time for luxuries like uploading blog pictures! Later!
Today, as you see a little time was found after varnishing the cockpit. The Manly Swimming Pool opened over the weekend and will be utilised until we leave for the US in just over one week.
