Our story on the Southern Great Barrier Reef, “Where Great Begins“, has been published by Australian Multihull World in their July/August 2021 edition. As always it is a thrill to see Chris’s writing and photography in this yachting magazine. The article gives our impressions on a range of reefs that are still in good condition, some seldom visited, and shares some information on what to expect when you anchor there.
For our readers who enjoy cruising vicariously, it shares the splendour of a mesmerising world we are lucky enough to spend a lot of time in. For the Australian yachties among our followers, it might be useful as a guide. But don’t leave it too late to go to these places, as our six-monthly visits reveal increasing reef damage from warming temperatures, frequent and intense storms. All is not well, even in the Southern Great Barrier Reef.

And now we have finally sailed north of the Whitsundays in search of new to us Reefs where Great continues. There may be another article in the making!
