Bravado Breeze
Sailing into the Sunset
Rough Plans
February 18, 2012, , Melbourne

We don't have a set schedule but we do have a rough plan.

How long are we going to cruise for? We don't know, while we enjoy it we will do it.

Where are we going ? At first eastern coast of Australia, Great Barrier Reef & Whitsundays during the non cyclone season, further south during the cyclone season.

Later on we would like to go to Lord Howe Island, Norfolk Island the South Pacific Islands and New Zealand.

Hi Steve and innes, only a few more weeks until March. We are hoping that your plans work out and that you cast off from HBYC to start enjoying the cruising life. We would love to be reading your blogs from some tropical location. Best wishes from Phil and Lesley

Steve -
In sailing I have found that not having a set schedule, or at least having a flexible one, is usually a good thing. :-)
I'm wondering if we could exchange an email or two regarding Australia in general. I've been there a few times, am considering something a bit more permanent...

Time Flies
February 18, 2012, , Melbourne

As the saying goes: Time Flies when you are having fun !

I will fast forward the past few years, we didn't go cruising as originally planned in 2010 or 2011 but WE ARE IN 2012, our ETD is Mid March or there abouts.

Life has been hectic, I moved to Melbourne, bought a very run down florist shop, built it but sold all this took a lot of long hours and hard work but I loved it (something I wanted to do for the past 25 years)

Steve has been busy working on the boat, as it turned out it needed more work that what we were expecting and by the time Steve finishes I don't think there is much left that he hasn't changed or fixed. That's one way to get to know a boat.
