Yes, we did spend a few days in the Whitsunday Islands, but no, we did not get off at the famed Whitehaven Beach. We sailed right past it since the weather was pretty miserable...at least we can say we were there in some form or another, who cares if we were soaking wet and getting blown over. Finally some good weather came through and we found ourselves on Thomas Island, letting the Australian Navy (boys!) on board to use our VHF and having a ridiculous photo shoot. This shot just may have to be on the cover of the imminent OceansWatch promotional packet.
