Sailing to Fraser Island

We missed it so much: feeling the wind in our sails and our speed through the ocean. Sailing to Fraser Island has been fun, even if the weather to get there has been capricious: rain, swell, strong wind… That was the downside, but even in these conditions we were in such a state of withdrawal after weeks of inactivity that we enjoyed the sailing and the freedom.

Mission Accomplished!

Take It Easy is in the Great Sandy Straits!  Mission accomplished: 900 nautical miles in two weeks, with a 5 day lay over in Mooloolaba for the rudder.  This is AWESOME.  Well done Wade, Mike and Merv…. OK and Bengie too!  We are so proud of you guys! It is now very hard for Chris,…
