Annecam now has a new home base

It is no secret and yes, the rumours are true, we have just purchased and almost moved into our new home, right on the Burnett River here in Bundaberg. We had our first night sleeping on a mattress on the floor last night, this morning we awoke to the beautiful sound of the birds singing.

Before you jump to conclusions, we still have Annecam and she is moored about one hundred metres from our front door and our plan is to keep sailing using our new home as our base for the Australian cyclone season.

This is the location where we first made landfall as we finished crossing the Pacific Ocean, we fell in love with the place then. We sailed south as far as Sydney after clearing in and stopped here for a second time at the end of May as we sailed north to Cairns. It was during this second stop we started looking at the real-estate that what was available in the area. As we sailed south from Cairns we started short-listing likely homes that would meet our needs and through our agent John we found our dream home.

I mentioned earlier that we slept on a mattress on the floor, this is because we are waiting to hear back from a transport company re-transporting our shipping container from our old home town of Horsham Victoria to where we live now, it will be like Christmas when it arrives.

Always look to the future because that is where we are going to spend the rest of our lives.

The photo, just checking the pool, just to make sure it is all good.

The video is our new home.

Annecam Cruising the Mediterranean Episode 4

This is our fourth video re-make.

This episode starts as we complete our first transit of the Corinth Canal and sail out into the Aegean Sea.

We take you to the Cyclades, stopping at places like Korfos, Poros, Kilada, Milos, Santorini, Ios, Paros and more. We sail back through the Corinth Canal right through to Preveza, the final port before we leave Greece.

Keep watching this space as our journey continues.

The photo is one of the storms we had in Greece before we left.

Annecam Cruising the Mediterranean Episode 3

This is our third video re-make.

This episode we sail away from the beautiful Croatia and are immediately blown away by the sheer rugged beauty of the Gulf of Kotor in Montenegro, we sail further south to clear out of Montenegro at Bar to head to Greece.

We find ourselves in a very different world as we sail into the Ionian Islands and into the Gulf of Corinth to transit the Corinth Canal. Keep watching this space as our journey continues.

The photo is a recent one of our Annecam, she carried us from Croatia back to Australia.

“Ships do not sink because of the water around them, they sink when that water gets inside them. In life, do not let what is happening around you get inside and weigh you down, always stay up”

Annecam Cruising the Mediterranean Episode 2

This video is the second episode of our journey.

This is our first international passage as we sail to Italy and back to Croatia, we have several guests join us. We winter Annecam in Croatia and fly back to Australia to catch up with family and friends for a summer down under. On our return to Annecam we sail to more locations on the Dalmacija coast, we eventually sail to our final Croatian port, Cavtat, to clear out to sail south.

We did not use our video camera enough back in the early days as we were too busy enjoying what we were up to, just as well we took some stills. Keep watching this space as there will be more.

The photo is Cam, Annie and Pivo (Fiona) enjoying the good times on Annecam in Croatia.

“In life, we learn something from everyone who passes through our lives. Some lessons are painful, some are painless. but, all are priceless.”

This is the first re-make video of our journey, this is where Annecam was born, this was where our dream became a reality.

We did not use our video camera enough back in 2012 as we were too busy enjoying what we were up to, just as well we took some stills. Keep watching this space as there will be more.

Cheers from us on Annecam.

This is a short video of our beautiful yacht Annecam we shot way back in 2012, sorry for the shaky shots.

She is an owner build Bavaria 46 Cruiser with three cabins, three showers, two heads, gimbaled gas stove, twin sink, refrigerator and a top loading freezer, enough storage space for the longest ocean passage and a fully integrated navigation system, complete with AIS, DSC VHF Radio, Radar plus more.

The photo is Cam complete with wig setting the anchor on Annecam

“The biggest failure you can have in life is making the mistake of never trying at all.”

Vessel Name: Annecam
Vessel Make/Model: Bavaria 46
Hailing Port: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Crew: Campbell & Annette Hair
About: Cam has had a long love for the ocean, over 40 years on and off various boats. Annie would love smooth seas and to never to see another winter.
Extra: Rig heavy, reef early, and pray often; for God does not promise us an easy passage, but He does promise a safe anchorage.
