Keeping our memories

03 February 2018 | Burnett River, Burnett Heads, Queensland, Australia.

Hi guys, we are back although not back on the water. I did mention that we now have a home base to sail from and back to, so we are just a little pre-occupied with setting up and getting ready for the arrival of our furniture that we put into our own shipping container way back in early 2012.

Our container was meant to arrive this weekend but the weather or I should say the rain is preventing us from getting the truck to the spot we have prepared, so it’s not only while on the boat that we are watching what the weather is up to but here on the land as well.

Annie has managed to gain temporary employment at the Queensland Public Trustee and I have been clearing the jungle in our back yard, making space for the arrival of our container. I have also made the time to re-make our YouTube videos and up-load them to our Sailing on Annecam YouTube Channel. We are trying to preserve our memories, so we can look back in years to come at what we got up to during our journey.

We love this photo of Annecam taken by Tania Macari last year in Fame Cove, Port Stephens, NSW.

“In life, do not go where the path leads, go instead where there are no paths and lay a trail for others to follow”

Here is our YouTube Channel Trailer;

Going through the Panama Canal on Annecam

As crazy as it sounds, we have managed to re-configure one of our digital hard drives, the hard drive that had a lot of videos and stills of part of our journey from Europe to Australia. We thought that the files were lost as we made the mistake of not backing up in several locations at the end of each day and when the drive that we were using had a hissy fit and kept coming up with an error message we were sure that all was lost.

After several attempts we now have most of our raw video back to fill in the gaps on here and our youtube channel.

Going through the Panama Canal on Annecam was always on our bucket list, one of the must-see places on our journey from Europe back to Australia.

A fantastic transit was had by all, this was a mile stone for us as we were now back in our Pacific Ocean, we had just left the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean behind.

Stay tuned as the re-makes keep coming, all for your enjoyment and for us to keep our memories.

The photo is the last gate on the Miraflores Lock opening up to let us through into our Pacific Ocean, it felt like we were almost home.

Annecam Sailing the Atlantic Ocean Episode 2

Canary Islands to the Caribbean.

We set sail with the same two crew members we had on board for the last passage.

This was our first real blue water passage on Annecam, our first Ocean crossing.

It was a fast rock-n-roll start, slow and calm seas in the middle with a nice finish.

We zigged and zagged our way across, I explain why in the video.

We make these videos for your enjoyment and for us to keep our memories.

The photo is of Sarah in full harness and clipped on with a tether to the jack lines, we have rule on Annecam that everybody stays clipped on while on passage day and night. We also have an MOB alarm activator and safety light attached to the harness. Safety is always the first priority on board Annecam.

“In life, don’t worry about failures, only worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.”

Annecam Sailing the Atlantic Ocean Episode 1

Gibraltar to Tenerife in the Canary Islands.

Meet the two new crew members as we make our way down the North African coast.

It was a bumpy start as we sailed away from Gibraltar but soon became a very gentle sail due to the lack of breeze.

Alex Thompson on Hugo Boss sailed by to say hi and the first thing he said was “why have you reduced your sails” we thought that was a bit cheeky as we had full sail plus our motor was going at the time, our 8 knots of boat speed was no match for the Boss as he was doing more than twice our speed.

Stay tuned as the re-makes keep coming, all for your enjoyment and for us to keep our memories.

The photo is of Alex Thompson on Hugo Boss when he paid us a visit on this passage.

Annecam Cruising the Mediterranean Episode 11

Cartagena Spain to Gibraltar.

We stopped at Carboneras, Almerimar, La Herradura and Fuengirola along the way.

This is the final re-make of our Mediterranean episodes as Annecam was about to set sail to the Canary Islands and the big blue water adventure, crossing the Atlantic Ocean early in 2015.

Stay tuned as the re-makes keep coming, all for your enjoyment and for our memories.

The photo is a shot of the map of Gibraltar

Annecam Cruising the Mediterranean Episode 10

The Balearic Islands to Cartagena Spain, this was our fourth passage for 2014.

We sailed from Ibiza to Cartagena stopping at Altea and De Las Dunas along the way.

We took a ride on the train from Cartagena to Barcelona stopping at Valencia to meet up with our dear friend Fiona plus Martha and Bob. We had a great time playing tourists and we all got back to Cartagena in time for the Carthaginian and Roman festival.

This is another re-make video for your enjoyment and for our memories.

The next episode we will sail from Cartagena to the Rock of Gibraltar.

The photo is Chuck and Cam at the start of the Carthaginian and Roman festival.

Keep watching there will be more.
