Local Help

This morning we were on shore when a strong thunderstorm came through the anchorage. We were concerned about our boats dragging. The very heavy rain obscured our vision and the rough surf suggested it was not a good time to hop into the dinghy to check. After several hours the skies finally cleared. We headed out to check on the boats. One was missing having dragged. Where was she? Nuzzled up against and tied to one of the large fishing boats. Apparently some of the locals had rescued her and secured her until the owners could come. These kinds of selfless acts help restore faith in the kindness of people. Fair winds and following seas 🙂

SV Val update

On shore in Sydney and safe!Just had a long conversation with the SMP. Nick and his partner spent the night at SMP. Got a bath and a good sleep. Also got to clean their laundry.! They will be appearing on Channel 9 at about 8 am here in Sydney. If anyone can capture and post for those of us without TV that would be great.
