Well I made it. 21 days. Fiji to Bundaberg, single handed on my new Pussy. 34 foot sailing Catamaran. I will be in Bundaberg for a few days, probably about Wednesday. then up anchor and head for Melbourne. Another two or 3 weeks of sailing before I am home again. Heather is a worry wort, She cant get her head around the fact that it takes me 3 hours to go 12 Nautical miles, Had a few scary moments, but my vessel is a proud testament to the builder that it is a very capable Blue water boat. When I get home. Out comes the Bird and I am going to Tasmania for a few weeks. My Blackbird does a bit better than 4 to 8 knots. Hahahahahahaha. I have had enough sailing for a while. Its the most gratifying and best acheivement that I have ever done, I am proud of myself. Considering, I cant sail for shit, and I have never driven a boat of this size ever. Rank novice. But common sence and an ability not to die in the arse when the going gets tough. Cool calm and collected, seen me through. and watching a lot of extreme sailing video's before I went certainly paid off for me. Catch up soon. Cheers. Brian.
