Nick informed me that s/v Val is under tow and headed to Australia. Great news.Fair Winds and Following Seas 🙂
Great news. Just got a call from the Australian RCC. s/v Val was sighted 35 nm of the Australian coast. Nick and Barbara must be happy.Fair winds and following seas 🙂
Nick and Barbara were dropped off on Reboot by the NSW Marine Police last night. We had some adult beverages and a good pasta dinner. They then got the first decent sleep in several days….Their story has gone global. They received telephone calls from Ireland and India asking for a statement. Also beautiful is the local outpouring of support including places to stay etc…The current plan is to see if we can locate sv Val and go retrieve her. …Fair winds and following seas ☺
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.
