Summer of 2012

11 May 2012
The leaves are turning red here in Australia. It is time to take the big bird north for my tenth summer in a row. I must say at the moment here in Canberra one cant call the nights summer. the temperature fall to zero and some nights we do have frost. The days are fins and at least pleasant. Sydney had 28 C yesterday which cant be called winter.
The plans this year are to put Malua in the water in July/August and sail westwards. Yes right across the Atlantic. I will follow the classic route of sailing south from Spain until the butter melts then turn to starboard until I can smell the rum of the Caribbean. Simple really, just a bit of execution to undertake. I have been very lucky to find two great people to accompany me on the crossing. a Kiwi fellow who appears to be a very good sailor and a younger kiwi who will use his muscles to assist the old blokes - not that the electric winches wont be working!
Only a few more sleeps before I leave for Paris and a slight detour to the UK
