WHERE ARE WE?

We move quickly, so it’s best to take a look at our most recent blog post to find out where we are….

Hydroquest was sold in Australia and she’s in her new home is in Lake Macquarie.  As of April 2014, Will and I are travelling by land in Southeast Asia.

More importantly, I think – Where have we been?  We sailed over 10,000 nm in the past two years.  Here is a global view of our Pacific crossing. After an amazing year in Mexico, we left in March 2013 and visited French Polynesia, Niue, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, and New Caledonia en route to Australia.

    I still have your mother’s handwritten letters mailed when you were in port on your family sailing adventures. I loved getting them but this blog is better!

    Yahoo – we made it! Arrived at our landfall today in La Paz after three long nights at sea. Sarah and Will you were awesome to be with on the boat with but I will let Sarah write of our adventures… she does it so well. Thanks for rekindling our love of the sailing life. Now I am ready for a huge Margarita….

    Will and Sarah, Good luck on your trip. We are in Mazatlan with s/v Code Blue. Had planned to do PPJ this year but looks like it will be 2014. Motor transmission tells us to spend more time in Mexico. Finally got it installed with a delay of Black Hole of Guadalajara, we shipped air and finally got it a month after it arrived in Guadalajara. Send an email if you would.

    Hi Will and Sarah, great to catch up, could not find your email address, but yes North Head will be crowded but views up the harbour and down the coast, so you can catch up with the start and the run probably under spinnaker down the coast, if going out keep to the north of the two marks in the harbour entrance. So far they are talking about NE for NYE so Atholl Bay would be perfect but very very crowded, alternative to anchor further out off Cremorne Point, there will be a line of yellow markers to show the no go zone in the middle of the harbour, a diagram will probably be on the Maritime Website, a third option would be Hermit Bay further out on the southern shore, views of the bridge and beyond but I feel you need to be close to really get the effects and in sight of bridge as this is part of the show. Have a great Xmas and 2014, David and Sarah
