Reef article published in Australian Multihull World!

We have another article published in the  March/April edition of the Australian Multihull World magazine! “Reef Hopping, the Stuff of Dreams” shares four of our favourite reef destinations. With the northern migration of cruising yachts soon to start, this might encourage a few of you to head there!

Seeing some of the photos with Take It Easy makes us smile. She was – she still is – so distinctive and we had such great adventures with her. We can’t wait to return to the Reef with Anui.

To download the story click on the photo below or go to our Published Page, Destinations section. As usual some of the photos are spread across two pages, so to get the full effect, we recommend you download the article, open it with Adobe Acrobat Reader and view it as a two page display.Title Reef Hopping

Enjoy exploring, either virtually or in your own yacht, and let us know what you think!

  1. The memories came flooding back, you really capture the essence of going to the reef and the experiences that can be had. Loved the photos. They so add to the story of our adventures. S

    • Hi Sue, it’s always good to get the perspective of someone who has been there. You will have to come back for more! Thanks for the feedback.

  2. Congratulations on your latest success, Chris. The article is really informative and the photos are spectacular. You are definitely living the dream. Of course, there is the other side of your life at sea that you have shared that reminds us that style of living has its own set of challenges, to say the least.

    • Hi Mike – yes cruising the Great Barrier Reef is dreamy. But you are right the flip side is the amount of maintenance which can be a bit nightmarish! I won’t tell you how many times I have re-read my notes and lingered over our reef and underwater images over the past few months to keep our spirits up! It is not all « smooth sailing » but when it is good, it is REALLY good.

  3. Great read. What excellent information for the first timer. Did you ever stop at Lady Musgrave.

    • Yes we did Greg, if you go to our published page, there are a couple of articles that include a review of Lady Musgrave and other reefs in the Capricorn & Bunker groups. Look for « Lure of the Reef » in the Destinations section and « Hooked on the reef » in the Amazing Experiences section. And of course lots of posts and photos in the October 2018 posts.

  4. And all we do is sail around the Gippsland Lakes!!! Hope you are both in excellent health
