Australia

A long post… I arrived in Bundaberg, Australia from Fiji in November 2016. I then headed down to Brisbane and finally Sydney where I sat out the hurricane season. A good thing as Hurricane Debbie did a number on the Northeast coast. Finally I left Sydney and headed up the coast to Horn and Thursday Islands by way of Cairns, Gladstone, Airlie Beach, Lizard, Mt Adolphus, etc. I departed to Debut, Indonesia on July 18, 2017. The good:1. The people are wonderful. They are outgoing and friendly.2. I got a chance to enjoy some great culture in Brisbane and Sydney.3. After a year in the Pacific it was nice to have great Internet, semi-decent marine stores, and good public transportation. 4. I enjoyed a class reunion with people I had not seen in forty years. 5. I got to join a sailboat race in Sydney Harbor. Quite the treat!The not so good: 1. I have been sailing for 60 years. I have been sailing around the world for eight. I have never encountered such consistency difficult conditions. Wi
