Many thanks to Andrew Wallace and the Townsville Motorboat and Yacht Club
for the free berthage, where Chris made a presentation and local greenie Luis Sanches found us. We talked about different ways OceansWatch can think about climate change over sausages Luis cooked up, after offering to offset our carbon footprint for the trip with his company, My Clean Sky
Chris and Irene were busy meeting with Reef Check Education and Outreach Officer Jo Roberts, Sea Turtle Foundation
project manager David Roe, and other important academics and students from James Cook University, trying to form synergies and bounce ideas off each other. Anna and I cruised the marinas chatting to yachties and handing out brochures like it was going out of style. People were either generally more receptive to hearing about OceansWatch, or we are getting more and more charming as the days go by. On to Airlie Beach!
