1 1/2 weeks to go until we set off on our trip of a lifetime!! Counting down the days now and trying to get everything done in time for our departure. shopping for food, spares and completing the list of jobs seems to be taking up all our time and having a 1 1/2 year old trying to 'help' is not really that 'helpful'!! In the last week our Rutland regulator seems to have packed it in so have ordered a new one from New Zealand and with fingers and toes crossed we are hoping it arrives before 4th may, our planned departure date.
In May 2013 we set off on a trip of a lifetime. Myself, my husband Luke and our 2 year old son Alexander on our Moody 41 'Luna Ray' with a vague plan to sail around the world. Well that was the big goal anyway!!!! We did plan to sail to Darwin and then Asia but time got the better of us so only got as far as Lizard Island. After a summer in Yeppoon (2014-5) we left earlier to try again and made it all the way to Thailand. For videos/slideshows of the trip go our YouTube Channel "lukerea1"... full info
